Early scouts were: Dean Barnes, D.C. Harvey, Luther Barnes, Ken Harvey, Virgil Johnson, Fred Dudek, Willy Metcalf, a Jones boy, a McCartney boy, Ralph Grosbach, and George Metcalf.

The Burlington Railroad finally reached Wauneta in 1892.—A large crowd gathered downtown on Jan. 28, 1892, to greet the first Burlington Northern passenger train. It was a gala day in Wauneta. Many children had never seen a train before so school was dismissed so the children could attend. For years the track ended here before extending it to Imperial.

Wauneta Falls Bank—The bank was founded in 1890 by F. T. Dimick and sold to V. Franklin of McCook in 1907. John Green of McCook and Roy Cocklin of Holdrege came to work at the bank and in 1914 became stockholders.
