A Proud Nebraska Town
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. Verdigre 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.
An Ethnic Czech Community
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.
