Davenport:  A Farming  Community in Thayer County, Nebraska

Discover the beautiful rural Southern region of Nebraska where the village of Davenport is located.  Historically Davenport was founded because of the Oregon Trail.  With fertile agricultural land and an ample water supply, Davenport is host to a thriving farming community mostly focused on grain crops and livestock.  Even with it’s small size Davenport offers something for everyone, including hunting, camping and nearby golfing. This is the “D” on the ABC Railroad and a place where train-enthusiasts watch in awe as the Union Pacific Railroad operates approximately 50 freight trains traveling through the city daily.  Close enough yet far enough away from the chaos of the city with Lincoln conveniently located just 100 miles NorthEast. Plains Tree Farm and Nutrien Ag Solutions are some of the city’s growing businesses. Davenport possesses solid community values, economic opportunity and affordable living for all!
