Submitted by: Eldon Meisinger, Plattsmouth, NE

From: Pacific City (Iowa) Enterprise, 1857

The following ad appeared in almost every issue of the weekly paper during 1857.


The city of Louisville, Cass County, Nebraska Territory, was laid out into a town about the 10th day of December, 1856, and on the 15th day of said month it received its present name. It was laid out on a claim then owned by Gardner POWERS, who claimed and received the honor of giving to it its name, and who retained 50 shares of the 200, besides a reserve of ten acres for the purpose of building a mill, etc. Mr, G. POWERS secured an act of the Territorial Legislative session of 1857, incorporating said city by its proper name and style; also making it a point thro' which the great Territorial road, leading from the city of Plattsmouth, N.T., by Pardell and Saline to New Fort Kearney passes, he being one of the commissioners to locate said road. He also asked for and received a Post Office at the city of Louisville, himself, receiving the appointment of Postmaster. He is now on the ground in person, ready and willing at any and all times to do anything honorable to advance the interest and welfare of said town or surrounding country, and would here say to young and old, rich and poor, that here is such a chance to secure homes for yourselves, families and friends, as you will rarely, if ever, meet with--mark that. Better soil, land and limestone rock cannot be found. Range for stock, as well as timber and health, cannot be surpassed anywhere. There is no place on earth where produce of every kind, as well as stock of all kinds, is easier raised than here, and the world cannot produce a better market than we have here; and the laborer can get just what he sees fit to ask for his hire - from 1.50 to 2 dollars per day - that's so. Here are yet plenty of chances to take up good claims, and some that now can be had at a low price. The town company are yet willing to give a few more lots to persons who will erect a dwelling house thereon immediately, and they have also donated lots for a school house and church. There will soon be a good mill in operation in said town, where lumber can be had as well as breadstuffs - and we will here say that Blacksmiths, Carpenters, Masons and all other kinds of mechanics and laborers could do no better than to settle here. A Tavern, Boarding House, Grocery and Store all would do a sure business here, and last though not least, judging from the number of males, and the scarcity of females, they, too, would go off like hot cakes - cut alas they ain't here to go off. The balance soon.
