We have a few Steinauer items scattered throughout the website, but here is a collection of just a few Steinauer things pulled at random during some rare spare moments. Our little sister town Steinauer has a rich history. We have shared some of that in "recent" years, with consolidation of the schools, and with the 1968 shift of the Catholic parish.

steinauer, two postcards circa 1908-1909
From Kristin Quevedo comes these two post cards from Edna Tackley to Ora Spencer Booth, her fiance at the time, circa 1908-1909. They did get married, fortunately for Kristin who is their great granddaughter!
Edna Tackley, then of Steinauer, Nebraska, writes to her fiance Ora in Sunrise, Wyoming:
"Dear Boy, Elizabeth - she has been sick but I think is better now. Was Christmas lonesome? ~ Edna"
Edna had Table Rock connections, and she was a country school teacher here, too. Read about her and see a picture of her:
The Heritage House has a beautiful enlargement of this photo. Here is a copy from our own postcard of it.
1909 - the edmunds band of steinauer
This is one of our early connections. A picture of the Edmunds Band taken by photographer Archer King, then of Table Rock. He was a fabulous photographer, and we hope to put together an exhibition of some of his unique photos some day, like this one.
