Based in Fairbury and is in Nebraska's 3rd district.
Organized December 3, 1902
Charter Granted February 3, 1903
 
Mettings second Monday of each month at 1:30 p.m.

"Quivera" was selected because of its historical significance. Francisco Coronado and his Spanish band set out to find the city of untold wealth. They landed on Mexican shores and went up through Arizona and Colorado and then into Nebraska. One proof that they were in Nebraska is that they spoke of the Sioux Indians. On arriving in Nebraska, Coronado exclaimed, "Good tidings, Quivera lies at hand." Quivera means untold wealth." Quivera was selected because of its historical significance.

  • If you should see your ancestors

    All standing in a row
    Would you be proud of them or not
    Or don't you really know?
     
    But here's another question which
    Requires a different view
    If you should meet your ancestors
    Would they be proud of you?
