Carleton:  A Historic Railroad and Farming Community in Thayer County, Nebraska

Carleton,  the “C” on the ABC Railroad, is home to a strong farming community that places high stock in its agricultural roots. The conditions of the crops greatly influence the economics of the town, both in good times and bad. Without the farmers, it would not survive. Important businesses in Carleton include Cargill’s grain elevator and Aurora Cooperative who are working together with the farmers to deliver products around the world. Sidelines Sports Bar is another standout offering wonderful hospitality, great food and a fun atmosphere.
