Bassett, Nebraska: Fake Pioneer Town

Attached to the side of a modern building, a fake Main Street of pioneer days fronts a tiny downtown park. Almost as old and weathered now as the original town must have looked.

120 Clark St., Bassett, NE
From US-20 turn north at the blinker light onto NE-7/Clark St. Drive a half-mile. On the right, just north of the intersection with Legnard St. and the old Phillps 66 gas station.

The Hotel - Photo Op Facade

Interesting display to walk around. There are picnic tables and a donor walk. It's at the town square. Good photo op.

Individual storefronts -- "The Bank," "The General Store" -- are dedicated to whomever sponsored their construction in this mini-Bassett of pioneer days.
