The Lexington Improvement Company was incorporated on October 25, 1889, with a fifty-year charter. The company dealt in real estate, mills, elevators, factories and their products, grain, livestock, bricks, lime, agricultural machinery, and lumber, groceries, and merchandise. The Lexington Improvement Company also built other structures, such as bridges, viaducts, and roads, that were deemed necessary to the operation and management of those businesses.


The collection consists of one reel of microfilm containing one volume of minutes dating from 1899-1917. This material relates to business conducted by the Lexington Improvement Company as reflected in minute entries.

These minutes contain information about membership, including listings of company officers and Board of Directors. Plans for purchases and investments are discussed in resolutions adopted at company meetings. The records also contain the Lexington Improvement Company’s Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws, which appear at the beginning of the volume.

History Nebraska does not hold the original minutes. The collection was loaned for microfilming by the Dawson County Historical Society in September of 1979.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
