Significance: The Chambers-Mayberry House was built in 1909 for George Chambers, a prominent citizen of Niobrara. Mr. Chambers was cashier of the Niobrara Valley Bank for years and held controlling interests in the Verdel, Monowia and Lynch Banks. The structure, one of the largest and most elaborate residences in the small rural community of Niobrara, exudes a certain dignity today as it surely did at the time of its completion.
