North Loup

Discovered on Google: "Early Day Street Scenes of North Loup, Nebraska." The scans were taken from postcards. Many Seventh Day Baptist families have had some connection with North Loup, for instance, an uncle and several good friends have been pastors of the Seventh Day Baptist church there.

This picture is identified as the "Seventh Day Baptist Church, North Loup. Before the fire."

This one is "Main Street, North Loup. c. 1913":

This one connects North Loup to my hometown in Wisconsin. "All aboard for Milton, 1916":

There are several more pictures at the site.

  1. The church brings lots of memories to mind...the ice cream socials, my first kiss, snow drifts high enough to build forts into, Our rabbits, Spotty's litter of puppies in the basement while watching Bonanza, learning the latest new dances in that same basement, the huge (to me) bathroom in the parsonage, cooking for 4H, burning my arm on a Sabbath morning when I bumped into Cathy with boiling cup of water in my hand, riding with Cecil Severance on his milk route and on his tractor, Sherm breaking his arm in the field near home and staying with him...
