GENEALOGY TRAILS SITE.
WELCOME TO LOUP COUNTY, NEBRASKA
Loup County Nebraska was organized in 1883. The
first white men settled here sometime prior to 1873 and lived a few miles
southeast of Taylor in the Sioux Creek-Kent area. The first county
seat was situated in Kent but was wrestled away by Taylor shortly after in
1883. The population continued to grow as the homeseekers arrived,
particularly following the Kinkaid Act of 1904 which helped to settle the
Sandhills area of Nebraska and the northern part of Loup County.
According to the April 12, 1904, Taylor Clarion, there were 207,780
acres of Loup County land that came under the Kinkaid Acts. Loup
County is totally agriculture oriented, both in farming and in ranching.
Fine cattle of many breeds can be found at any number of large and
small ranches. Two rivers, the North Loup and the Calamus and two
highways, U.S. 183 and State Highway 91 are vital to the County.
Some of the friendliest Nebraskans to be found in the state call
Loup County home.
