    HISTORICAL NOTE

    Platte County, Nebraska was originally settled in 1856 by members of the Columbus Town Company who came from Columbus, Ohio. A town site was located at the confluence of the Loup and Platte rivers and named Columbus. The county itself had been created in 1855, but organization did not occur until the winter of 1857-1858. Columbus was selected as the county seat. In 1866, the Union Pacific Railroad reached Columbus and contributed much to the county’s later prosperity.

    In recent years, Platte County has been closely associated with the development of public power in Nebraska, and is the headquarters for the Nebraska Public Power District. The Loup River Public Power District was organized at Columbus in 1934.
