Endicott Village Life Visit # 10 - The Map

The early settlers in what was to become the Endicott area started dropping off along the Oregon-California Trail in the 1850s. But, it wasnt until the 1860s and 1870s that you could really count many sod and log cabins scattered about.

What encouraged the creation of Endicott was the coming of the Chicago Burlington Quincy Railroad in the early 1880s and its crossing of the St. Joseph and Grand Island Railway that came in the early 1870s. At this junction, both railroads established depots and the village of Endicott was born. The town was platted, the lots and streets laid out and soon buildings began to spring up from the prairie.

Just around the towns northeast corner, about three miles to the east/northeast, emerges a brilliantly-hued wonderland of autumn foliage all dressed-up in its Nebraska best at the Alexandria State Recreation Area.
