Hubbell, NE

Chester:  A Farming Community in Thayer County, Nebraska

A small village in south central Nebraska, where resident Stephen Epler from Chester, developed Six-man football in 1934 as an alternative means for small high schools to field a football team during the Great Depression. Miss Nebraska 2017, Allison Tietjen calls Chester home.  Chester earned its description as the small town with a big heart through it’s outpouring of love and support for an unknown nine year old boy whose body was found near Chester on Christmas Eve in 1985.  He was referred to as Little Boy Blue because his body was found in blue pajamas. Filled with beautiful people inside and out, Chester really is the small town with a big heart.
