About This Destination

Verdel, Nebraska marks the end of the George Shannon Trail and "George Shannon's Final Years." The 16-site trail is now complete!

Verdel is an interesting little ghost-town in Knox County, with a population of 30. It was founded in a different spot some miles away, but Verdel boomed in 1902 when the Chicago & North Western railroad reached this spot in the rolling green prairie carpet near the junction of the Niobrara and the Missouri.
