Founded in 1854, we are one of Nebraska’s oldest cities. Plattsmouth is rich in history and culture. Situated at the confluence of the Missouri and Platte rivers, Plattsmouth has a place in the discovery of the west. The Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery passed the mouth of the Platte River, just north of what is now Main Street Plattsmouth, on July 21, 1804. Our City seal reads “Honor the Past, Plan for the Future.”
Plattsmouth proudly offers a full range of excellent city services, including police; volunteer fire and rescue; public works which includes water, sewer, streets, parks, and grounds/facilities maintenance. So that we are prepared for the future, we recently expanded the fire and rescue department with a $1.7 million expansion that includes meeting rooms, a kitchen, and sleeper rooms. Our new $5.7 million Senior and Community Center serves more than 1,000 local area citizens who visit more than 12,000 times per week. Twin Rivers Water Park, Rhylander Park, Garfield Park, Memorial Park, and all other parks/recreation facilities and our excellent library add services and lifestyle qualities so that Plattsmouth’s citizens and our visitors have superior places to live, work, and play. In 2011, Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman presented the Showcase Community Award to Plattsmouth for outstanding efforts in the areas of economic development and community revitalization.
