Dannebrog is a picturesque village nestled in a valley of Oak trees. The village is full of history and ethnic orientations. There are romantic style homes, a beautiful park with RV hookups and 3+ miles of hard surface hike/bike trail in a wooded area. The Oak Creek winds through the village and the Middle Loup River is just a short distance outside of town.
Danish immigrants founded Dannebrog in the 1870s and the citizens of the village take a lot of personal pride in their Danish ancestry. In Danish, “Dannebrog” is the romantic name for the Danish flag.
The village was founded by Lars Hannibal, president of the Danish Land and Homestead Company which was to secure a tract of land for settlers of Danish origin. In 1872, the first post office was established and in 1886 the first railroad track was laid through town.
