Established in 1913 as a memorial to Abraham Lincoln, Highway 30 came through Sidney and Cheyenne County during the 1920’s. The first all-paved, coast -to-coast route later proved to be of prime importance to the economy of the region and continues to serve the area. Original sights from the era still stand: the Sidney American National Bank built in 1889; Brewster Garage, which is now Guy’s Home Haven; and the Lodgepole Handley’s Drug Store, now known as Fraas Sundries that still has the same shelves and working soda fountain. The opera house was built in 1911 as a garage with the opera house on the second floor.
Historic Downtown Sidney
As many as 2,000 gold seekers, adventurers and desperadoes would enter and leave frontier Sidney on any given day. It was the site of many old west shootouts and colorful western lore that earned it the title as “The Toughest Town on the Tracks.” Those traveling by UP coach were even advised to not leave the passenger car and do so only at their own risk when it stopped in Sidney. Tourist today can take a step back in history on a walking tour of downtown Sidney.
