Business Directory

Thedford is the county seat of Thomas county, and is situated about the center of the county, on the G. I. & W. C., a branch of the B. & M. R. R., and has a population of 400. Here may be found well represented business and occupations of all kinds. The country around is unequaled for agricultural purposes. The very best water is found at a depth of 20 to 30 feet. Its citizens are enterprising and united in everything in the way of public improvements. Their liberality in this respect is shown by a fine brick court house, costing $10,000 and good school house. Among the prominent features is the Thedford Bank, authorized capital, $25,000, a good hotel, lumber and coal yards, and two newspapers, Thomas county Veteran and the Thedford Tribune.
