174 BUSINESS VIEW MAGAZINE FEBRUARY 2021 I conic rural America, peace and contentment personified. That’s an apt and appealing description of the town of Thedford, Nebraska – population about 190 friendly folks. Thedford is at the crossroads of the famous Sand Hills of Nebraska with highway 83 running north and south and highway 2 running east and west. It’s a welcoming little community with one service station, two motels, a grocery store, and a restaurant open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm until 10:00 pm, serving “Fine Food and Drink!” For patrons of arts and culture, the Thomas County Historical Society and an Art Guild are open on request. Outdoor enthusiasts are spoiled for choice. A mere 17 miles to the east is Halsey National Forest – the second largest hand- planted forest in the world. To the north are several thousands of acres comprising the National Game Refuge. To the west within 50 miles are two world-class golf courses, the Sandhills and Dismal River Clubs. As well as a popular 9-hole golf course just north of the Thomas County Airport. And that airport (KTIF) is a gem on its own merits and a vital connector for the region. nty Airport Aviation hub of the Nebraska Sand Hills
