The story of why we were without a sign for so long…
Scribner began in 1870 as an English and German community founded by John Blair. In the beginning, it was a bustling railroad town full of activity and commerce. Though there were only 50 residents by 1874, the word was soon out about this best-kept secret and the population grew to 1,100 by 1920. Though the railroad commerce is a thing of the past in Scribner, it still maintains a population around 1,000 and has plenty of action and small-town adventures for its residents and many visitors.
