Weeping Water, Nebraska

Weeping Water…the name comes from the Indians who named the stream running through Weeping Water because of the “rustling water,” the sound of water running over the low falls.  When the French arrived, they confused the meaning to mean “Water Weeping.”  Hence the name which still stands today. Weeping Water was platted as a town in 1867.  A small town of just over 1,000 residents with a median age of 38 years old, and best known as a limestone quarry town.  Late in June every year the town celebrates Limestone Day with fireworks, parade and festivities!
