Have you ever thought about who were the first settlers in Arnold, Nebraska? Back in May of 1883, “A colony of Lincolnites had arrived here and filed on all the tillable land and some we hear that is not tillable,” quoted a reporter from the South Loup. This included the Mills, Houghton, Needham, English and Conant families. They all had arrived from their journey from Lancaster County. These few groups of families were the beginning of Arnold, Nebraska.
This is a map that can help you find your way to the original homestead of the Mills Family.
