This is OUR community!

We are a community improvement award winner located near the picturesque Beaver Valley. Also the site of the Logan Fontenelle Monument where the famous Omaha Indian Chief, Logan Fontenelle (White Horse), was killed in 1855. We have two public parks and are the home of the annual Nebraska State Antique Tractor and Horse Plowing Bee and the Rae Valley Old Threshers Reunion in August.
