Stanton County, Nebraska's physical shaping was accomplished by Mother Nature. Recorded temperatures ranging between minus 41F and 107F; recorded rainfall measuring from 13.2 inches to 38.72 inches; recorded snowfalls ranging from a few inches to a "few" feet [the average is 30.6 inches] made interesting contrasts.

With the Elkhorn River and its contributories and the fact that the soil has a high moisture capacity, dry summers didn't cause great hardship on residents in the beginning of Euro settlement.

Before Euro settlers began to move into the county, this area was resort to the Pawnee who followed ancient cultures who settled there. The Spanish probably visited the area for coins have been found here as well as herds of wild horses.
