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 postcard - circa 1907 (2)
A nice clear view of the Chester Nebraska school showing the original building before the east side classrooms were added in 1910.
Photo by DA Kopp. From the Hebron Journal-Register (1887): “D. A. Kopp, from Omaha, has purchased John Arnold’s drug stock at Chester and taken possession. “
