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.
