Exploring Small Towns in Siouxland, Blair, NE

9 Jan

On one of my visits in southern Siouxland I stopped by to visit the nearby community of Blair, NE. A small community with a pretty downtown. It’s just down the road from the DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge and is maybe 10-12 miles from Missouri Valley.

The Washington County seat is located in Blair and it has a rather impressive courthouse just off of the downtown area. It has a population just under 10,000 and seems to be a fairly thriving community with a lot of harvest trucks passing through the downtown area as farmers finished their fall harvests of corn and soybeans.

I kind of figure with prediction of snow coming and colder temps my forays out may slow a bit, but I am still hopeful to do more exploration around Siouxland during the winter months. I may just not be walking as much  when I am out.
