Camp Lookout

940 East Elm Street
Sidney, NE 69162
Camp Lookout is the oldest building in Sidney and perhaps the entire Panhandle. The structure was built in 1867 to house soldiers from Fort Sedgwick, Colorado, who set up an outpost along Lodgepole Creek to protect railroad workers pushing the Union Pacific across the plains. Later known as Sidney Barracks, it eventually became a lodging facility and then a private residence after the Army pulled out in 1894. Volunteers worked tirelessly to have Camp Lookout opened by Sidney's Sesquicentennial in 2017.Ghost tours of Camp Lookout and Boot Hill are done near Halloween every year.More info at Call to have a volunteer open the Camp and give a tour.
