History

For more than 140 years, York County has served travelers as it has been known as the “Crossroads of America”. Once a resting place for weary pioneers looking for a local “road ranch”, York County still provides amenities to thousands of travelers every year.

Starting out as a dot on the map, York County quickly became a reference point for the pioneers migrating westward along the Oregon, California and Mormon Trails and was a popular stopping point on the Nebraska City/Fort Kearney cut-off. As the railroads began arriving in the early 1870’s, York County quickly started thriving as a regional farm trading center.

Today, York County still finds its roots in the agriculture and hospitality industries. Interstates and Highways have replaced the early trails that funneled settlers to all parts of the West and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railway still plays an important part in growing the economy of York County.
