The Holt County community of O’Neill has been the Irish Capital of Nebraska for 50 years. No matter their lineage, residents living in the thriving community today embrace and honor their community’s Irish heritage, and celebrate it during St. Patrick’s Day.
Nebraska Life hit the road in search of five small communities that live large despite their size. This installment of “5 Towns Under 500” takes us to Lynch, Bellwood, Byron, Lemoyne and Harrison where we discover that bigger isn’t necessarily better, and that these small communities are big deals for those who live, work, play and raise families here.
Congratulations to Juli Habegger of Pawnee City. Juli answered our recent reader survey and her name was drawn for a vacation package to Valentine. Watch future issues of Nebraska Life for more opportunities to win.
