Sutherland, Nebraska (pop. apx. 1200)
A fun little mural in a small town that calls itself "The Biggest Little Village in Nebraska".
The red,white and blue stripe represents the Lincoln Highway.
They are proud of their reservoir for some reason so it made it onto the mural.
The boat anchor, I have no idea.
The Oregon Trail and the Mormon Trail both pass by near Sutherland.
The Pony Express route went through Sutherland as well.
That is why the horse rider and the wagon.
The Union Pacific Railroad still uses the tracks behind the building.
Today just the Lincoln Highway sees any action anymore, and not very much of that except for the locals and travelers like Sinbad and myself who would rather drive it than Interstate 80 a few miles to the south. The little building once was a service station for Frontier Gas. Nope, I never heard of Frontier Gas either until seeing this mural and the sign standing tall nearby.
But the gas evidently left your car "Rarin' to Go!"
