Nuckolls County, Nebraska




 A Proud Member of The Genealogy Trails Family



Nuckolls County was organized and held its first elections on June 27, 1871.  


This county is located in the southern tier of counties, west of the Missouri River.  


It is bounded by Clay on the north, Thayer on the east, the state of Kansas

on the south and by Webster on the west.


 It was mapped out by the Territorial Legislature of 1858, and was named

after a wealthy firm of merchants doing business in Nebraska City.
