    THE NORTH LOUP RIVER 4 more images

    rafting, canoeing, fishing, etc.

    Just in case you were wondering, the North Loup feeds into the South Loup to become the Loup River, which feeds into the Platte River, which feeds into the Missouri River, which feeds into the MIssissippi River. So a leaf tossed into the North Loup at Burwell would in theory end up in the Gulf of Mexico at New Orleans. Just in case you were wondering.

Burwell Off The Beaten Path

    An early day cavalry fort has been preserved just ten miles south of Burwell on highway 11. It is a state historical park, and a permit is required, which you can obtain at the fort.

    Go ten miles south to the village of Elyria and watch for the sign to Ft.Hartsuff. You will turn east for 3 miles to get to the fort, but its all paved.

    Fort Hartstuff was an active post during 1874-1881. The post operated during the Plains Indian Wars and functioned as a relief post for settlers on the plains. In addition to this, it became a social center where settlers could find work as well as sell produce from their farms. When the railroad came through, there was no more need for the fort and it was closed. Today, the Nebraska Game and Parks commission runs the area as a living history site. On holidays and Sundays, guides in period uniforms interpret the history regarding the post.
