County Info

The eastern boundary of Otoe county is the Missouri River.  It is a largely agricultural region with rolling hills and rich soil.  Corn, soybeans, milo (grain sorghum), wheat, and other, less common, grain crops are joined by several commercial apple orchards.  Animal husbandry concetrates on beef cattle, the locally produced grains being excellent sources of feed for them. 

 Otoe County was first defined on March 2, 1855, formed from "Old Pierce County".  Named for the former residents, the Otoe Indians.  The Otoe lived along the Missouri River in the area that is now Otoe County.  It has been spelled "Ottoe" and "Oto" before its present spelling was agreed upon.  The boundaries were redefined in 1856.  Its county seat is the river-port, Nebraska City.
