Juniata History


   Juniata, named by the Burlington Railroad for a river in Pennsylvania, is the oldest town in Adams County, and was the original county seat.  The first settlers, members of the Michigan Colony, arrived in 1871 under the auspices of the Burlington Railroad.  The town was surveyed and platted in November, 1871 in Section 12, Juniata Township.  The county organizational election was held December 12, 1871 at the home of Titus Babcock in Juniata.  29 votes were cast and Juniata was elected the county seat of Adams County. 

The first official county business was transacted on January 12, 1872 when the commissioners, S.L. Brass, Edwin M. Allen, and W.W. Selleck ordered the first county courthouse to be erected in Juniata.  The building, to be built in ten days, was 20 feet by 16 feet. 

Adams County's first newspaper, the Adams County Gazette began publishing on November 25, 1871.  No issues, except the first, of this newspaper which printed in Juniata until 1876, are known to exist.   The first train pulled into Juniata on June 8, 1872.  Before that the mail was carried overland from Grand Island, in Hall County, or from Sutton, in Clay County.  A large flour mill, operated by steam power, was erected in 1874, and settlers from all over south central Nebraska and north central Kansas brought their grain to Juniata to be ground into flour and animal feed. 

The Juniata post office was established in December, 1871.  Names of postmasters with dates their service began follow:   Titus Babcock, December, 1871; Wm. Knickerbocker August, 1881; Samuel J. Shirley October, 1881; Samuel L. Brass June, 1885; David V. Stephens November, 1889; Walter E. Shaver May, 1893; Isiah H. Rickel November, 1897; Howard L. Sergeant August, 1914; Tim N. Cannon May, 1934; C. Lavern Gangwish March, 1951; Melvin A. Hagemeyer June, 1952; Bonnie Sittner March, 1973; Kay Brown .      

The Commercial Hotel on Juniata Avenue, south of the railroad depot, was one of the largest in Nebraska west of Lincoln during the 1870s.  Among its amenities were a "sample room" (bar) ladies parlor, and an ornate dining room.  It was demolished in 1897. 

The first school, District No. 1, Juniata, was organized  in 1871.  A large brick school building was erected in 1896 and stood until 1977 when it was demolished.  The last high school class graduated from Juniata in 1967.  Juniata Cemetery, located one mile west of town, organized in 1873, is the oldest cemetery in Adams County. 

The first Methodist Church in Adams County was organized at Juniata in 1872, and built a church building in 1875.  It is still in operation.  The Baptists also organized in 1872, and built a church in 1878.   Their church is now the Community Church.  The Church of the Brethren organized in 1881, built a church in 1893 and disbanded in 1922.   

Juniata's history took a fateful turn on April 12, 1872.  that day representatives of the St. Joseph and Denver Railroad appeared before the county commissioners, asking for $75,000 in county bonds to complete twenty-five miles of track in Adams County.  In a decision that had major consequences, the commissioners declined to fund the project, reasoning that the railroad would build through the county regardless.  The St. Joseph and Denver did build, but its tracks crossed the Burlington line at a place seven miles east of Juniata.  Named Hastings by the railroad, this crossroads grew so rapidly that six years later the county seat was moved there after a bitter fight. 

Despite loss of the county seat, Juniata continued to grow.  The 1897 business directory contains fifty-four listings.     In 1881 Geary Post No 82, Grand Army of the Republic, (an organization of Union veterans of the Civil War) was organized. 

In 1879 C.R. Jones Bank was established.   It later became the State Bank of Juniata and in 1934 merged with the State Bank of Prosser to become the Adams County Bank of Kenesaw.  The Adams County Bank built a new branch facility at Juniata in 1996.   

Juniata has suffered many disastrous fires in its history.  In 1883 seven business buildings burned, in 1892 the flour mill burned and was rebuilt, in 1908, the Thorne Block, the largest building in town with its second story opera house, and the bank of Juniata burned.  In 1917 several brick buildings built after the fire of 1883 burned.  The mill burned for the second time in 1925 and was not rebuilt.  The last major fire in the business district occurred in 1961 when the gymnasium-auditorium, built on the site of two previous fires, burned.      

The Juniata Grain and Livestock Association was incorporated in 1897, changed its name to Juniata Farmers Co-op in 1943 and is now Heartland Co-op.  Juniata's grain elevator is one of the largest in the area, and a sizable livestock feedyard is located north of town.

A two story town pump with band stand was erected over the public pump and cistern at the intersection of  Juniata Avenue and Tenth Street in 1904.  It was later reduced in size and finally destroyed by a tornado in 1960.       

Because of its proximity to Hastings, Juniata is now a commuter suburb with few businesses.  Its population (about 900) is larger today than it was during the 1880s.
