    Actually it is for soldiers, sailors and airmen. Right on the main street downtown, you cannot miss it. As the picture shows, it was under construction as of May, 2006, but it is done now.

    Each Arapahoe citizen who wished to contribute gave $100 per brick. Each brick bears the name of a local military person. The named bricks are on the reverse side of the monument.

    This city park, as you can see, features lots of wonderful shade trees and well-maintained grass. What a great spot to stop for a picnic lunch in the summertime.

    The Muddy Creek Saloon has been a staple of Arapahoe Dining for decades. You'll find it to be local, quiet, and quirky-- all the things that make Arapahoe a great place to stop on your way through the mid-west. Featuring your basic comfort foods, a great salad bar and standard beers/liquors. The prices are reasonable; the service is always great!

    Favorite Dish: Try the french dip and a trip to the salad bar!

    IT LOOKS LIKE THE SUMMER OF 2006 WILL PRODUCE A BUMPER CROP OF ORANGE CONES AND BARRELS THIS YEAR, especially in and around Arapahoe. Drive carefully and "give 'em a brake"

Arapahoe Off The Beaten Path

    I passed this old barn in the country about 3 miles southeast of Arapahoe. You can see some wonderful sights out on the gravel roads.

    About 25 miles to the northeast of Arapahoe on highway 6/34 is the site of the former Atlanta (Nebraska) Prisoner-of-War Camp from Worold War II. None of the buildings remain on the site.

    However, in Arapahoe one can find one of those buildings, perhaps the only one left, just one block east of the main downtown section. It was moved here after World War II and has been used for a variety of purposes since.
