Early Settlers of Saunders County

The Saunders County Museum is a tribute to the pioneers who sought a better life on the prairie. Early settlers were predominantly Czech, Germans and Swedes drawn to Saunders County for the opportunity to own a piece of land. Railroads helped development and towns flourished along their lines.
