Who's Who In Cheyenne County Nebraska?
The population of Sidney in 1900 was 1,001; today it has a population estimated at between 3,500 and 4,000, with an assessed valuation of $3,125,950. It has a beautiful stone courthouse, built in 1911 at a cost of $100,000; a magnificent city hall and auditorium, built in 1930 for $130,000; a modern $100,000 high school building, built in 1931; three grade school buildings; three parks, with band shell, shelter house, swimming pool, and five miles of paved streets, with storm sewers in the business district. Fire at various times has destroyed practically all the original business buildings of the city and they have been replaced with modem, fireproof structures of either brick or native stone.
