1890-91 Business Directory of the Nebraska Gazetteer


Greeley Center is situated in the central part of Greeley county, at the junction of the Erickson and Burwell branches of the B & M R R, in the midst of a productive farming country, in Spring Creek Valley, 12 miles from the Loup river. Its position is favorable to its aspirations to become the judicial seat of the county. But little over three years ago a lone house stood upon the site now occupied by a town with 700 inhabitants, and with excellent facilities and prospects. The Lincoln Town Site Co, who are largely interested in the land upon which the town is being built, have donated a block of ground, and the town has commenced the erection of a public building 38 x 44 feet in dimensions three stories in height, and to cost $7,000. A substantial brick school house has been erected at a cost of of $8,000, and a full roller mill, four stories high, with a capacity of 68 barrels daily, cost $15,000. A neat opera house which will seat 700, cost $4,000. The M. E. church have a comely building with a handsome tower, cost $2,000. and the Catholics are building a church to cost $4,000. The Greeley State Bank capital $25,000, is at the head of the banking institutions of the county.  Its prosperity indicates the wisdom of its management and the progress of the town. The Citizens State Bank also a good monied institution. The Greeley Leader and the Greeley Democrat are the newspapers this place.
