The first non-native visitors to this area were the trappers of St. Louis. Next came the pioneers who followed the Oregon Trail. To protect them, the government has established are strong at intervals along the trail. Then came the Union Pacific Railroad. It is speculated that Ogallala began around 1867. Settlers began following the railroad west and ranchers began driving their cattle to Ogallala to be shipped east or sold to ranchers in Montana and Wyoming. Ogallala’s beginnings were unspectacular, promising to be little more than a section house and water reservoir for the railroad. Then, in the spring of 1868, three men appeared to fix the fate of Ogallala. These men were the Lonergan brothers and Louis Aufdengarten. The Lonergan brothers came to do construction work for the Union Pacific Railroad. They found the plains to their liking and later became interested in Ogallala. By 1876, Ogallala had changed little from its beginnings in 1868. The stores were all south of the railroad tracks and faced what was called Railroad Street and the path leading south to the Platte River. Along this path stretched the rest of the city. The town consisted of saloons with names such as The Cowboy’s Rest and Crystal Palace. The last building on the street was the Ogallala House – a widely frequented dining hall due to its excellent cuisine. It was led by the SS Gast. In 1880, Ogallala consisted of a courthouse, school, hotel, two dwelling houses, and twenty-five permanent residents. The pace of life in early Ogallala changed with the seasons. During the winter months and early spring, life was dull and dreary. Shortly after June 1, the city began to buzz with activity as the first Texas trail herds began to arrive. During the three summer months, business boomed – ten to twelve herds, each of two hundred or more trail workers taxing the Ogallala facilities. Bedrooms and meals were hard to come by when the trail workers were in town. Activities at Ogallala continued at a fever pitch until late August, by which time the Texans returned to Texas; by November, Ogallala had settled into a calm and peaceful rest. Ogallala’s population of floats, gamblers, traders, and dance hall hostesses drifted to Omaha or Cheyenne to spend the winter. A hotel, a supply store and a single saloon remained open for the winter. The community sank into a state of inactivity until next spring. In 1882-1884, settlers and farmers reached Ogallala. These men were encouraged by the Union Pacific Railroad because the railroad began selling their land at fairly low prices. A severe outbreak of Texas fever swept through Nebraska in the summer of 1884. The disease first appeared near Ogallala in July, apparently brought by Texas cattle. The disease spread rapidly and caused very heavy losses to herders. Ranchers had started putting expensive blood bulls into their herds. These ranchers demanded that cattle from Texas be excluded from Nebraska. This Texas cattle ban dealt a detrimental blow to the activity of Texas trail herds. It was the end of Ogallala’s trail period, as the wild and often violent town became a peaceful colony of farmers.
