History & History Related Items

Valentine history:

Valentine was named for the congressman from Nebraska during the time period 1879-1885. His name was E.K. Valentine. He gave assistance to the local people here with their grievances toward the government. Because of reports that this sandhill area was not habitable, few people came here to settle. It wasn't until the railroad arrived in the early 1880's, that settlers came. It was incorporated in 1884 as a village. Due to its out of the way area, many outlaws came to make themselves at home. Rustler's Roost near the town was one of those havens. The Native Americans of the area, the Sioux and Pawnee, often hunted and ranched here. Once settlers arrived, this was a cause of hostility between the settlers and Indians. As a result, Fort Niobrara was built at the river.
