Welcome to Custer County Nebraska

This page is dedicated to the Early Pioneers of Custer County
Who came to this County with empty hands and hearts full of hope. They were not great in the terms of this world. But to me They represent the very best this Country has ever had to offer. They have all gone now and yet their Spirits echo in the Summer Breeze that sometimes kisses my cheek, in the warm Night air that hugs me softly... Their voices sing in the wind that gently taps my window. Listen carefully, Maybe just Maybe you too will hear their song.....

History of Custer County
Custer County was created in 1877 from unorganized territory, and was named for General
George Armstrong Custer. However prior to 1877 the area was inhabited by Indians and an
abundance of wild life. It's Prairies were covered with buffalo grass making it ideal for the
Cattle-raisers who soon discovered it's worth. Cattlemen soon became King's of the furtile
land, thus causing some conflict with the onslaught of Homesteader's who began to arrive in
1876/77. Struggle ensued for some years, eventually Cattlemen and Farmers alike grew weary of
conflict and learned to live together on the land.
