"HILDRETH, NEBRASKA" Hildreth by Rich62

Hildreth Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 15 photos


Welcome to tiny Hildreth, Nebraska. I thought this street corner was interesting. In a small village like this, you are not violating any city ordinances if you attach a flag and a sign to the street sign. Life is truly simpler here. The sign "Old People Crossing" is meant as a joke, but it does signify the fact that many of these small towns have a large number of retired and elderly people.*


In my business I travel a lot throughout central Nebraska and I see a lot of signs. But this one is my favorite. Any town that can poke a little fun at itself is all right in my book.

Only 370 people live in Hildreth. It is located south of Minden about 15 miles, then west 5 miles on paved spur "S31B".


This is someone's back yard, or part of it anyway, in Hildreth. A fantastic vegetable garden on the left, a windmill, some roses, lawn, and a very nice gazebo with chairs for lounging in the shade. This house happens to be on the edge of town, so in the distance is a corn or soybean field.*
