The Oldest Town In Nebraska That Everyone Should Visit At Least Once
The entire state of Nebraska has endless stories to tell about its history, but only one can lay claim to the title of the oldest continuous settlement in the state. That would be the city of Bellevue in southeastern Nebraska, right along the Missouri River. First settled by fur traders in 1822, the town was officially incorporated in 1855.
