Cairo, NE

“Pronounced ‘Care-oh’”

Established in 1886, legend says that a survey engineer exclaimed,  “It looks just like a desert and should be called Cairo”, referring to its counterpart in Egypt.   The company clerk followed through with the theme of naming the streets appropriately:  Egypt, Berber, Thebe, Nubia, Medina, Suez, Said, Mecca, and Nile.

A year after being established, Cairo had a thriving main street and 200 citizens.   Now, 118 years later, Cairo’s population is 790 citizens.    Look for our new Welcome Camel on North Hwy 11, donated by Mr. Eddie Baach.
