         One important purpose of the Chase County Historical Society, with its museum in Champion, Nebraska, has been to collect and publish information and stories reflecting Chase County Nebraska History.  It's volunteer researchers have made every effort when possible to verify the information they set forth in their publications, however, knowing that a true history of an area is not always in the facts and figures, but in the stories and antedotes passed down from family member to family member.  Since their organization in 1938 they have published several Chase County Histories, and are continuing to gather information for future publications.     The following is a list of the Table of Contents of each publication, showing the wide spectrum of information that these dedicated historians and scribes have set forth in the Histories.

                Each of these published Histories are available at the Museum in Champion, or can be viewed  at the Imperial Public Library, in Imperial, Nebraska.  If you do not live in Chase County and are interested in buying a copy, you can e-mail the webmasters for information on how to do this.
