HISTORICAL NOTE

   Nance County, Nebraska, was organized by act of the Legislature in 1879, from what was once the Pawnee Indian Reservation. Mormons first settled in the area in 1857, but were soon forced to leave by the creation of the Pawnee Reserve. In 1876, the Pawnee were relocated to the Indian Territory, and sales of the reservation lands began in 1878.

    Nance County was named in honor of Governor Albinus Nance, who served from 1879-1882. Fullerton, the county seat, was named in favor of Randall Fuller on whose land the townsite was located.
