Wymore, NE

Wymore was platted in 1881 as a railroad town, on land donated by Sam Wymore.[5] The "Welsh Capitol of the Great Plains," Wymore became home to generations of immigrants from Wales, who continued their culture in day-to-day life, founding a Welsh-language church, school and cemetery, as well as preserving the Welsh traditions of poetry, dance, and intricate music in minor.

In 2000, the Wymore Welsh Heritage Project was founded to preserve the legacy of these early settlers. It has since expanded to include a museum, an archive of genealogical records, and one of the largest Welsh-language libraries in North America.

Wymore is home to the Southern Raiders, a class C school that serves students from Barneston, Holmesville, Blue Springs, Wymore, and Liberty. The school has won 2 state championships, both in wrestling (1974 and 1980). The Wymore Arbor State baseball ballfield has one of the few covered, behind-the-plate bleachers in the state.

Wymore, Nebraska is also the burial place of author and anthropologist R. Clark Mallam, whose book, Indian Creek Memories; A Sense of Place is set in and around the town.
