Kimball County, Nebraska. Located in the Southwest corner of the Nebraska panhandle, Kimball County holds the towns of Kimball, Dix and Bushnell.
Welcome to my little corner of Nebraska History and Genealogy. My name is Marcia Buescher and I am a local lifelong resident of Kimball County. I have many records available for look ups and I have posted a few here. If there is something that you would like to know about our fair county, please contact me.
Kimball is rich in history, and not all of it came from the Pioneers of the 1800's or the oil discoveries of the '50's and boom of the 70's, or the Missile silos...
On June 29, 1951, the future of the county changed. Nebraska Drillers, owned principally by John Neidfelt and Jess Nichols, hit oil on the S.E.Torgeson farm seven miles southwest of Kimball. The oil production is continuing today, but really slowing down. Too many rules by the EPA.
In the spring of 1962 an Atlas "E" Missile was to be located just a couple miles southwest of Kimball off Highway 71. The major missile influx was in the 60's, and continued into the 70's.
