About Seward, NE

In those interesting days in the birth of the county and the country in general in which it is located, Seward was not a town.

It got its name about the time that Camden and Milford were springing into prominence, but as the party who owned the real estate desired for the new town site hesitated about having a town built upon his property, the city of Seward was somewhat like the “chicken counted before the egg was hatched.” And the town not only had a name, but it got a post office before it had a location which was almost forced into the log residence of Lewis Moffit and that gentleman conscripted into Uncle Sam’s service as postmaster by the enterprising citizens. These matters together with the little log school house, serving the purpose as church, school and county court house have been previously dealt with in the reminiscences of pioneer days in this history, and we have now before us Seward, a modern city.

Seward today with a population of between three and four thousand inhabitants is supplied with numerous daily mails by railway. The Chicago Burlington & Quincy rail road, known as the B. & M., enters the city from the east, west and north, and the Chicago & North Western passes through it from north-east to south-west. While the weekly mail – carried a distance of twenty miles in an army haversack by a man on foot – has been supplanted by the daily mails as stated, the log house post office has been replaced by an improved structure at an expense of several thousand dollars supplied with a complete set of modern post office fixtures, including eight hundred and forty private mail boxes at an expense of three thousand five hundred dollars. In addition to these facilities for handling the city mail there are six rural mail routes, upon which mail is delivered daily from the Seward post office to several hundred of the farmers’ homes now occupying the old homesteads of pioneer days.
