Tear Down Of The Former Visitor Center Has Begun

HJHotelMonday, January 21st, is a day to remember the previous building that served as home to the North Platte/Lincoln County Convention and Visitors Bureau for nearly four years at the corner of East Francis & Dewey Street. The Visitor Center is now located at 315 West Eugene Ave.

The open space presents  the possibility of an exciting  new business to join North Platte, a new restaurant, gift shop or even something completely unique to the wonderful city.

Today is also Martin Luther King Jr. Day which takes place on the third Monday of every year.

    We don’t need anymore banks good lord. Maybe they should build something that will keep the young kids and teens in this town out of trouble, give them something to do. Lord knows that a perfectly fine building didn’t need to be torn down just so another bank gets built. Leave the banks where they are, downtown were main banks should be. UGH!
