You’re now entering the sandhills of Nebraska
I grew up roughly three miles away from the line between Boone and Madison counties. After a few years away, I came back and am now still roughly three miles and 100 yards away from Boone county.
It’s a rural, ag based economy like most of the counties in Nebraska. Lots of farms, hog confinements, and feed yards are spread through the land to the horizon. Albion, the county seat, is considered the “Gateway to the Sandhills”. While I am sure there are many of gateways the town of Albion decided to make it their own.
You do not have to go much further west of town and you can see how the topography changes from the rich dark soil of Madison or Platte counties that border it to the east. The land gets a little rougher and sandier. There’s still farming going on here but ranching is also more prevalent than in the more eastern part of the state.
