Cherry County lies east of the Nebraska panhandle and was created in 1883 from unorganized territory. As you can see on a map, Cherry County is large.  Larger than the state of Connecticut! The county seat, Valentine, is located in the northeast portion of the county and is located in Nebraska's Sandhills - the largest tract of dunes in the Western Hemisphere.
