When seven land speculators claimed Fremont, Nebraska in 1856, the Union Pacific transcontinental railroad figured prominently in their vision for the town. As these “Pathfinders” predicted, industry flourished along the rail lines. Foundries, factories, and sawmills grew in the Fremont area and helped connect and sustain the small prairie town.
