Niobrara is one of the oldest towns in the state and is located directly on the Lewis & Clark Trail, is on the Outlaw Trail Scenic Byway and on the stretch federally designated as a recreational and scenic river. Niobrara is also known as one of the newest towns in the state because it was relocated twice due to the encroaching waters of the Missouri river, most recently in the mid 70s.
Agriculture and tourism are the backbone of the business community here. Niobrara has beautiful scenery and many, many assets including hunting, fishing, golfing and boating. Another plus are Niobrara’s schools, whose teachers and students have recently both been recognized by the state for outstanding efforts in testing and assessments.
The Niobrara Community Foundation has been established to receive tax-deductible gifts of cash, property, bequests, and other gifts supporting the betterment of Niobrara and the surrounding area. It is an opportunity for everyone who cares about the future of Niobrara to become involved.
A permanent endowment fund has been started to receive funds that will not be spent, but invested. The interest from this money will then be used for projects/improvements in our town/area. The Niobrara Community Foundation, affiliated with the Nebraska Community Foundation, having tax-exempt status, was created in September 2007.
