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.

Farmers Bank of Chester Nebraska Cancelled Check 1891
Here’s a very early check from Chester Nebraska, written on November 18, 1891. Made out to Rob Wilson and signed by Parlin(?) Martin (per DP Marsh). This is one of the simpler designs on an old check that I have seen.
