Notes
Survey number HABS NE-33
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-33, FN-34).
Building/structure dates: 1870 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1881 subsequent work
Significance: From 1905 to the late 1970s, the building served as the home of town's newspaper, Niobrara Tribune. After the disastrous flood of 1881, the Tribune Building was among the surviving structures moved to the new second townsite of Niobrara. Architecturally, the building is an excellent example of nineteenth century pioneer commercial architecture with a false front and large display windows, and representative of the type structure which played an integral part in the streetscape of a thriving Niobrara.
