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.

1917 Report Card from Thayer County Nebraska
This report card is likely from Alexandria, and not Chester, but is included to show what was a typical report card from the era. It’s the 1st grade report for Flora Murrell. Flora’s teacher was Sabina Costelloe (who married in 1924: “Miss Sabina Costelloe of Alexandria and William Cortney of Hebron were married at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Alexandria.”)
