12 Small Towns In Nebraska Where Everyone Knows Your Name

Nebraska is a state made up of just a few cities…and what seems like a thousand small towns. While everyone seems to have a different definition of “small” when it comes to population, we can all agree that these super-tiny Nebraska towns have definitely earned that description. In these places, it would be virtually impossible not to know the names of everyone in town. (Note that, while there are lots of unincorporated communities with smaller populations in Nebraska, this list includes only officially designated towns and villages.)

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Most of these towns used to have far more residents; for one reason or another, the populations shrank over time. But in true Nebraska spirit, the residents who remain are unflinchingly loyal to their homes and wouldn’t live anywhere else.
