Land Description

Cheap Land in Nebraska near Fairbury.

Just 11 minutes south of the Jefferson County seat of Fairbury lies these 6 lots originally platted in 1887 as part of the future city of Thompson, Nebraska. Fairbury, which once hosted the western headquarters for one of the Great Plains mightiest railroad companies - Rock Island Railroad - is still the heart of this region and the source of public water for many miles around.

Priced below Market

Direct Frontage on Paved Public Road

Power & Water Available

Very Flat & Buildable

Seasonal Stream

PROPERTY: The 2.81 acres of cleared farmland here is made up of 6 different tracts, with the largest tract weighing at 1.12 acres. The 0.76 acre piece right next to it features about 295 feet of direct frontage on Highway 8, a paved public road. There are no structures on site, but power and water does run along the road frontage so the whole package is very ready for your development. It's ready for just about anything, in fact, because the AGR (Agricultural Residential) zoning applied to these tracts comes with very few restrictions. The lot is generally flat but it varies slightly enough to feature a little seasonal, “blue-line” stream running east-west through the main pieces. Otherwise, it's very buildable and this countryside neighborhood (named “Thompson” when it was originally platted in 1887) is very small and peaceful. Campers, fishermen, and nature lovers will enjoy living just 6 minutes from Buckley State Recreation Area & Lake, but you're still close to all the city conveniences you need, with Fairbury and its Walmart just 11 minutes to the north. The capital city of Lincoln, home of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, is 80 minutes away and offers all the sports and big city excitement you're looking for.

Call, text, or email Scott if you have any questions or would like to make an offer. We've posted a lot of info below - including viewing instructions - so please keep reading.
