  Box Butte County

1890 Hemingford

Taken from the 1890 Gazetteer.....


A prosperous and progressive town of 400 inhabitants in Box Butte County, on the G. I. & W. C. R. R. branch of the B. & M. R. R.  The city is incorporated and has every indication of becoming the county seat.  It has several fine store houses and private dwellings, good school house, Congregational church, costing $2,500, lumber yards, two hotels.  The finances of the city are kept on an easy basis by three banks -  Bank of Commerce, Bank of Hemingford, and Box Butte Bank.  These solid institutions exert a more  vital influence upon the trade, reputation, growth and prosperity of Hemingford, than any other agency within its borders.  Its officers are conservative, always accommodating and popular with all who come in contact with them.  They make a specialty of real estate, loans, insurance and collections, a department in which they enjoy unusual facilities for accommodating the public.  The Guide is a sprightly newspaper, deserving and receiving the patronage of the district.
