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

The story of Byron began with the coming of the railroad and as a "town divided," not only by the railroad, but also by the Nebraska-Kansas state line. The first building on the town site was the train depot, quickly following a general store and a hotel appeared simultaneously on the south side of the railroad, in Kansas. Byron has always been an active little town and quickly picked up the pace on it’s side in Nebraska to maintain equal growth.  Sitting on the Kansas border,  Byron is an active agricultural community with The Corner Market grocery store and Tillie’s Bar and Grill both provide top notch quality foods with smalltown hospitality.
