Come Czech Us Out!

Verdigre sits in the northeast corner of Nebraska, only 12 miles from the Missouri river, and right on top of the Verdigris Creek, a tributary of the Missouri river. Vaerialerdigre is a proud farming community with a rich outdoor tradition including both hunting and fishing. Area wildlife, which is abundant, includes wild turkeys, pheasants, rabbits, squirrel, deer, raccoon, ducks, geese, and coyotes. Fishermen enjoy fishing for catfish, walleye, northern pike, crappie, perch, blue gill, bass, etc. The surrounding area is quite scenic and provides some of the most beautiful views in the state. There are plenty of areas designated for outdoor recreation including Wild Wood Acres park and the Bohemian Prairie wildlife management area. Verdigre was founded by mainly ethnic Czech-Americans, and this is evident by our celebrations, and the goods available at our local bakery. The community embraces our Czech heritage through signs and our annual celebration, Kolach Days.

2019 Flood 

The excitement began on March 13, 2019. What happened? The Village experience the rush of water from the hills to the Verdigris Creek running wild. Many house basements flooded and virtual all main street businesses were disrupted in some way. Shock rushed over the village that day only to be followed by a blizzard March 14.      The final result we are all here. Neighbors, friends and strangers came together to move out debris and get life rolling again. Businesses are here and all our citizens are here. But we miss you! Come see us. Our village has changed forever. New bridges of opportunity have arrived. Friendships happening every day. Currently we have our largest town collection of potholes ever. Who knows you may even catch a dirt devil running through town. So slow down and enjoy the good life. Verdigre is extremely grateful for all the help, donations, and caring that has been expressed to our community both in town and our largest industry our farmers.  Sincerely Leroy Hollmann  Mayor
