Our Community

 Welcome to Kearney Nebraska

Kearney is one of the fastest growing communities in Nebraska. Located in south-central part of the state, Kearney has developed as regional center in many capacities.

With a population of 34,000 people, Kearney prides itself in maintaining a small town atmosphere with big city opportunities. The University of Nebraska at Kearney, the Museum of Nebraska Art, the Great Platte River Road Archway Monument and our growing medical community are just a few of our points of pride. However, it is our people that make Kearney unique. We welcome you to our community.
