Bloomfield is the #6 site along the George Shannon Trail. This site tells about the diet of the men as they were on their great expedition. To keep up with the extraneous condition of their travel, the men ate around "6,000 Calories a Day".
Bloomfield is a haven for those who prefer small-town life over city living. There aren't many places left where you can work during the day and go fishing and boating in the evening. If you want to mix some fun into your day, Bloomfield is the place for you.
Bloomfield, population 1,126 (2000 Census), is located in the northeast corner of Nebraska, 20 miles from South Dakota and 65 miles from Iowa.
