Downtown Prepared

Downtown Prepared

Boy Scout Motto: “Be Prepared”. Historic Downtown Fremont Motto: Better to be safe then sorry.

March 16th, the word went out that there was a possibility of the flood waters reaching the downtown area. Local shop owners took the warning and prepared their front entrances. The ‘All Clear’ was given on Monday that the threat was over and that the city was doing a great job in redirecting the flood waters away from the city.

Buck’s Shoes Closing

Standing as tall as this grand old Downtown Fremont building is one of the class acts of our Historic business community, Mr. Kirk Brown. By now we have all been given some small bit of the news that Buck’s Shoes will soon stop selling and start closing it’s doors for good. Soon, very soon the discount sale will begin. A letter has been sent to Bucks supporters and then the wall to wall liquidation will be open to all. As in all things changing, nobody knows what’s next for Kirk and Molly Brown and nobody knows what may be in store for the property at the corner of 6th and main street in Historic Downtown Fremont, Nebraska. Good luck and God bless.

APT Store

APT Store

Need a sewing machine fixed? Other then the APT store in Downtown Fremont Nebraska please tell me where you might get that done. When visiting Connie at the APT store on 6th street be sure to ask what “A, P, T” Stands for. Very interesting. Early in the last century this building was home to Finch’s Cafeteria. Then the Green Room and then the Tally Ho Restaurant. The Franklin Life Insurance Co.was located here until 1993 when this space became the APT Store. It’s loaded with a whole lot of history that Connie loves to talk about. Enjoy.
