Fairmont

Fairmont, a flourishing town on the main line of the B&M RR, at the junction of the St. Joe & GI RR and a branch of the Chester and Fairmont line of the B&M RR, 54 miles west of Lincoln and 43 miles east of Hastings, near the center of Fillmore County. The surrounding county is thickly settled by a prosperous class of farmers, and extensive shipments are made from this point of both grain and livestock. There are two banks. Hotel facilities are ample, and excellent accommodations are afforded at the Pacific Hotel for the commercial and general traveling public. The Clarendon also is a well kept house. The Nebraska Signal is an exceptionally well edited and carefully written newspaper, having a large circulation among the farmers throughout the entire state. This firm has one of the finest and best equipped newspaper offices between Denver and Omaha. The Fillmore Chronicle is also well patronized. The Opera House is a fine brick building with a seating capacity of 400 person. The place is well supplied with schools and has several attractive church edifices, the Congregational, Methodist and Presbyterian, and also several secret societies. Population 1500.
