SCOTIA

SCOTIA is in the southwestern part of Greeley county, on the 
North Loup branch of the U.P. Ry., 4 miles northeast of Grand 
Island and 298 miles from Omaha.  It is the county seat and has a 
population of 500.  The village is beautifully situated in the 
North Loup valley.

A brickyard is in operation and soft stone which hardens with 
exposure to the atmosphere is quarried here and used for building 
purposes.  There are two flour mills, making a good grade of flour 
and doing a good business.  Two banks, the Greeley County Bank, 
capital, $100,000, and the Peoples Bank.  Water works are to be 
constructed in the near future.

The churches are:  Methodist, German Methodist and Catholic.
