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 High School postcard - 1910
Here is another postcard of the Chester Nebraska High School in 1910. The east side classrooms and basement gymnasium were added this year, with the west side being completed in 1907.
You can notice how the roof is different in the two stages. Even today, there is a slight coloration difference in the bricks between the stages.
