Clinton, NE

Clinton School

Clinton School

Clinton is another Nebraska town just barely hanging on.  This tiny but still incorporated town of 33 is located on US Highway 20 in Sheridan County in the northwestern part of the sandhills.

There were a few small grain elevators along the highway that looked like the only commercial business in town, but the town was shrouded with hopelessness.  I was too embarrassed for the few remaining residents to take any pictures of their dilapidated homes.

The school must have been a real source of pride at one time, notice the ornate brickwork, but now it’s merely a sidestep for the ceaseless wind that rolls across the prairie.

Thought for the Day:  Never deprive someone of hope, it might be all they have.                                                                                                                          H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
