Merrick County, Nebraska

A Proud Member of The Genealogy Trails Family



Merrick County is located in the valley of the Platte, bounded by Nance on the north, the Platte River separating Polk and Hamilton Counties, on the east and south, Hall and Howard on the west.  


Located where it is,almost seventeen hundred feet above sea level, Merrick County, like all of Central Nebraska is favored with a good, healthful climate.  


Twice within the history of the county great loss has resulted from droughts; but as a rule, the climate is favorable to vegetation.  


The absence of all swamp lands make this area

particularly favorable to the cure of fever and ague, and all malarial diseases.
