About the area
Central City was first called Lone Tree when it was founded around 1866 as a result of the Union Pacific Railroad laying tracks through Merrick County. The first permanent building in town housed a store, hotel, bar, court, revival meeting hall and the builder's home. Several historical site still remaining in and around the city represent the past. There is the Nelson Farm, circa 1879, just West of the city; Riverside Park Dance pavilion, circa 1940; the author Wright Morris's Boyhood home, circa 1893; the Heber Hord house, circa 1906, which belonged to the son of the local businessman whose Central City based operations included livestock feeding and ranching, lumber yards, farm supply houses and grain elevators and the Martha Ellen Auditorium, circa 1916, the scene of musical concerts, operas, vaudeville performances and classics and later used as a movie house but no longer in use. Today there is a new Performing Arts center in which school plays and concerts are presented and community events take place. There is also a city community enter and the Merrick County Health and Fitness center. The latter facility is equipped with a heated swimming pool with wheelchair ramp, hot tub, cardiovascular area, weight room, a full-sized regulation basketball and volleyball court, racquetball courts and a multi-purpose room.
