History information for Wauneta.

Another history page for Wauneta.

The first settlers of Wauneta were George Rowley and his wife who came here in 1875. They built a large sod house where the county's first white child was born, Earl Champion Rowley. George Rowley was later killed by Cheyenne Indians on his way home from Ogallala. The Rowley's owned a piano on which Mrs. Rowley played and sang for the trappers, cowboys and other settlers when they stopped in to rest. One of their favorites was a Spanish love song, "Juanita." When the town was founded in 1887, the town was named for this song. Since there was another town of Juanita in Nebraska, the post office changed the spelling to "Wauneta."
