The Nebraska Store That’s In The Middle Of Nowhere But So Worth The Journey

The tiny village of Madrid in southwestern Nebraska is located at least 30 minutes from any major cities. In most towns of this size, that would mean at least a 30-minute drive to get to a store for necessities. In this little town – population 231 – the residents are lucky enough to have their very own general store.
