Gold flowed freely across the table, liquor across the bar, and sometimes blood flowed on the floor when a bullet killed an unlucky cowboy On the floorboards of Tuck’s Saloon. The first non-native visitors to this area were trappers from St. Louis. Next came the pioneers who followed the Oregon Trail. To protect them, the government established forts at intervals along the route. Then came the Union Pacific Railroad Company. Supposedly The beginning of the Ogallala was 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 early history was unspectacular, promising to be little more than a section house and a railroad water tank. Then, in the spring of 1868, three men showed up to determine Ogallala’s fate. These men were the brothers Lonergan and Louis Aufdingarten. 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 the Ogallala. By 1876, Ogallala had changed little from its childhood days in 1868. The stores were all south of the railroad tracks, facing what was called Railroad Street and the lane leading south to the Platte River. Along this path stretched the rest of the city. The town consists of saloons with names like The Cowboy’s Rest and Crystal Palace. The last building on the street was the Ogallala House – a dining room which received widespread patronage because of its excellent prices. It was operated by SS Gast. By 1880, Ogallala consisted of one courthouse, one school, one hotel, two apartment houses, and twenty-five permanent residents. The rhythm of life in the early Ogallala changed with the seasons. During the winter and early spring months life was monotonous and dreary. Shortly after June 1, the city began to buzz with activity as the first Texas trail herds began arriving. Business boomed during the three summer months—ten to twelve herds, each of two hundred or more, taxed the Ogallala facilities. Bedrooms and meals were difficult to find when hands were in town. Activities at Ogallala continued with great enthusiasm until the end of August, by which time the Texans were returning to Texas. By November, the Ogallala had once again settled into quiet and peaceful rest. Ogallala’s floaters, gamblers, merchants, and dance hall hostesses drifted to Omaha or Cheyenne for the winter. One hotel, one supply house, and one saloon remained open for the winter. The community sank into a state of stagnation until next spring. In 1882-1884 settlers and farmers arrived in Ogallala. These men were encouraged by the Union Pacific Railroad because the railroad began selling their land at very low prices. A serious epidemic of Texas fever swept through Nebraska during the summer of 1884. The disease first appeared near Ogallala in July, apparently brought by Texas cattle. The disease spread rapidly and caused huge losses to herders. Cattle owners began placing expensive bulls in their herds. These ranchers demanded that Texas cattle be excluded from Nebraska. This ban on Texas cattle was a devastating blow to the Texas cattle trade. This was the end of the Ogallala Trail period, as the often violent wild town became a peaceful farmers’ settlement.
