In the northern part of Cherry County lies Eli, NE on US 20. The town is still shown on the state highway map, but no population is given. This town is so small it doesn’t even rate a standard green sign for the highway that says “unincorporated”. The town had to make its own sign.
But, Eli has a general store;
it must be busy at times, it has a parking meter in front. And, there is a fire plug to keep the local dogs happy.
Eli has its own very well-kept church. The sign on its front said, “First Western Church.” The church and the store, both were in good condition and looked in working order, but I saw nothing to call home.
