Located in the Scenic Loup Valley

In the heart of the Loup Rivers Scenic Byway, Ord is centrally located within 30 miles of the Calamus, Sherman and Davis Creek Reservoirs and 25 miles from the North Loup, Middle Loup, Calamus and Cedar Rivers. Ord is a gateway community to the ecologically unique Nebraska Sandhills, “the largest sand dune formation in the Western Hemisphere.” Within that stretch of rivers, valleys and rolling hills is cropland and natural habitat for a multitude of wildlife and plant diversity. If you’re seeking open space and room to breathe, we have it in abundance.
