Welcome to an online collection of artifacts from through Chester’s history. Many of these have been collected over the years and rather than just stay hidden in filing cabinets and boxes, I thought it would be good to display them until (hopefully!) one day Chester gets a museum of its own.
Do you have something in your collection to share? Send a clear photo and short description via email and we’ll add it!
Chester Nebraska School Building 1907 Postcard
This postcard shows the original school building as built in 1907. The classrooms and basement gymnasium were added in 1910. You can see part of the east entrance to the right of the frame.
This postcard was written by “Bessie”, who was likely a teacher as she wrote “I like High School work fine.” (and then she complains about the weather, of course!)
