Once heralded as the "Queen City of the Plains," Alliance, Nebraska originated as a simple railroad junction called Grand Lake. Founded on true pioneer spirit in 1887, Alliance has grown from a farm and ranch community into a major retail center for Box Butte County. The Knight Museum showcases over 200 images in this new book, depicting the history and growth of Alliance during its 113-year history. Although there are many anonymous threads that make up the social fabric of Alliance, readers will recognize the more familiar faces of the Newberry family, Dr. Frank Knight, Miss Susan Frazier, and Miss Katherine Schill. While some landmarks are gone forever, such as the depot and the Coors Building, many timeless photographs remain to guide the reader down the main street of Alliance's rich history. From the vintage image of the county courthouse to the beauty of western Nebraska's largest park system, readers will get a glimpse of the pioneering spirit that is still so abundant.
