HISTORY OF LORETTO, NEBRASKA, by Mabel DURAND
This town was originally named Loran, for Mr. Loran CLARK, who was one of the first seven homesteaders in this vicinity. Mr. CLARK was a well educated man, active in politics and one of the first Representatives of Boone County.
After the name of Loran was considered for the Post Office, there was a conflict in some way with another post office in the State, so it was changed to Loretto, and the first post office established on July 21, 1888, with Louis SCHNEE as postmaster, followed by Jacob McCARTNEY, John FARLEY, Simeon MORGAN and Louis HALLSTEAD. The Loretto Post Office closed its doors permanently December 31, 1871, upon the retirement of postmaster Mabel DURAND.
In 1893 several families met at the Depot to organize a school district and build a school house. Judson PIERCE was the spokesman. They voted bonds amounting to $1,000 which would build and furnish a two-story school. In 1913 they found it necessary to build an addition to the school. Josh STARKEY and his son, Arthur were low bidders and built the addition on the east side, making it a 10 grade school, ready in 1914.
Some of the early teachers were Frank HOWTZ, Grace HOWTZ, Amelia PORTER, Lulu MAXWELL, Myrtle NEWBURN, Myrtle CODER, Bowman LILLY, Edith McHENRY, Edna SWAID, Della WRIGHT and Neva BARNES. The Loretto school was dissolved in 1970.
The Loretto Church held its first services in 1892 in a 12' x 16' building. The first church was built in 1901, with the need for a larger church being fulfilled in 1918. Some of our early ministers were Rev. PHILLIPS, Rev. Milt WRIGHT, Geo, COBB, A.M. THROCKMORTON, H.A. CHAPPEL, J.H. ALLEN, I. HEDDEN. The Hotel, now torn down, was built in 1900 by Jerry REED. It had eight bedrooms.
In its Hey Day, Loretto had many flourishing businesses such as a cheese factory, elevator, stock yards, lumber yard, barber shop, several general stores, cream stations, meat markets, a blacksmith shop, telephone exchange and harness shops and garages.
Our heritage has survived and succeeded by the neighborly love of this small community as an example for our future generations which exists today.
Some responsible as early settlers are the CLARKS, REEDS, PIERCES, DODGES, RANDALLS, BARNESES, MILLS, VanCAMPS, St LOUISS, CODERS, KRONKRIGHTS, HAVENSES, GALYEANS, KENDRICKS, HALLETEADS, McKIBBENS, McCARTNEYS and many others.
The Heritage of those early settlers was passed on to the next generation who profited by their early experiences and sacrifices.
Added as early residents are the MILLES, BRUNERS, LUDWICKS, HOLMESES, COURTNEYS, STARKEYS, ATKINSONS, KNOTTS, JOHNSONS, WILLIAMS, FORNEYS, COOKE, TIEDES, CLARKS AND BRANDTS.
The Heritage of those people has enabled us to have this celebration and honor today. They have made it possible for all our parents and the present day natives to enjoy the "Good-Life" we now have and may it long exist.

Mrs. R.A. Van Arsdall of Sutherland, NE (nee Nellie Williams) was my grandmother. She graduated from St. Edward High School in St. Edward, Boone County, NE in 1906. Myrtle Williams, Nellie's older sister, graduated from the same high school three years earlier, in 1903.
