This Fraternal Order of Eagles building was built from 1949-1950. This sign with ripple tin panels appears to be from then. [map]

Fremont National Bank

The Fremont National Bank was built around 1938. The building now houses the First National Bank of Omaha. [map]

Union Pacific
Hastings, NE
This Union Pacific building must have been used for offices and/or storage. It might be from the 1920s. Does anyone know anything about this building? [map]

Dutton-Lainson Company
Hastings, NE
The Dutton-Lainson Company building was designed by C.W. Way and built from 1917-1920. This is too early to be considered Art Deco but I'm including it anyway. It is also known as the Victory Building, commemorating the American victory of World War I. The terracotta details include "D"s for William Dutton and "VB"s for Victory Building. The clock from the former German National Bank of Hastings was moved to this building in 1970. [map]

Zinn's Jewelers
Hastings, NE
Zinn's Jewelers was founded in 1889. I believe this vitrolite storefront remodeling is from the 1930s. The store has been closed and vacant since at least 2010. [map]

H.J. Bartenbach House
Grand Island, NE
The H.J. Bartenbach House was built in 1893. The house and garage were extensively remodeled from 1937-1938 with this design by Gordon Shattuck. The buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. [map]
