York, Neb., Democrat Print: 1888
This book, also titled "Our Illustrated York, Nebraska" allows the readers to take a step back in time and view the city of York in 1888 - in the midst of a spectacular growing surge.
The text covers the first twenty years of the city of York, beginning with the 1868 pre-emption claims and a single framed shanty standing in what would eventually become downtown York. By 1888, when the book was printed, the city of York was a self-proclaimed "Banner City" of 6,000 souls.
Reprints of this 1888 book are available from the York County Historical Association. The 42 engravings of the courthouse, the business blocks, churches, schools, and community leaders are outstanding. If you would like to order a copy, or copies of individual pages, please use the order form, or a resonable facsimile. The cost of the book is $7, which includes postage.
