With the area’s strong focus on agriculture, an immense amount of supplies, equipment and goods needed to be brought into Harvey County. On the flip side, appreciable quantities of products and goods needed to be shipped out. How did this happen? From the very first day of the county’s existence, the railroad played a key role in transportation. For a summarized account, go to Unit #4 “Rails & Trains in Harvey County” in this pictorial history series. In more recent times, transportation needs have been filled quite significantly through the roads and highway system which has been developed all over Harvey County. This pictorial history unit about Harvey County was compiled by Ronald Dietzel.
