Deshler: A Historic Railroad Community  in Thayer County, Nebraska

Escape to the warm inviting community of Deshler, a city in Thayer County, situated  in the heart of farm country in the far southern region of Nebraska along the Kansas border where cattle, grain sorghum and wheat are produced and raised.  Outdoor enthusiasts find wonderful hunting opportunities for pheasant, quail, deer and other small game as well as fishing for catfish in the nearby Little Blue River.  Thriving businesses offer vast opportunities. Consider that for five generations, the Cooper family has emphasized the value of working together to assess and respond to the needs of their customers at Midwest Bank in Deshler, while Reinke Manufacturing and Irrigation, a world leader in irrigation systems is headquartered in Deshler.   With its rich railroad history Deshler provides unique opportunities for businesses like Spring Creek Model Trains, one of the largest model train inventories in the Midwest.  Deshler is also home to the Thayer County Fair and has an annual community picnic. Together, they have helped Deshler to earn the reputation as “my kind of town”.
