History of Kearney

The village of Kearney Junction was platted in the summer of 1871. The junction of the two railroads was completed in 1872. In the fall of 1873 a bridge was completed across the Platte, connecting Kearney with the rapidly developing areas to the south. The City of Kearney, incorporated in 1873, became the county seat of Buffalo County in 1874 and the rest– as they say–is “history”. Join Chan Lynch for his visual presentation of the history of Kearney, Buffalo County, the Kearney Army Airbase during WWII, and the history of three generations of Chan’s family.
