Big Springs Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 3 photos

SAM BASS and BIG SPRINGS, NEBRASKA

BIG SPRINGS IS A QUIET, LAW-ABIDING TOWN. But for some reason it has been the scene of more than one robbery over the years. Here is the story of one of them.

A PIANO RESTORATION BUSINESS

THE GENTLEMAN WHO RUNS (OR RAN) THIS BUSINESS WAS ONCE FEATURED ON NATIONAL TELEVISION ON THE CBS SUNDAY MORNING PROGRAM, WHEN IT WAS HOSTED BY CHARLES KURALT. Nebraska's own Roger Welch did a "Postcard from Nebraska" segment featuring this man and his business. His name was Klint Schlake and the store was called "Ye Olde Piano Shoppe".

Big Springs is located just north of Interstate 80 only a coupleof miles from the Colorado border.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Quiet and peaceful, when no robberies are going on.
  • Cons:Its 3 hours to Denver and 5 to Lincoln.
