Mud Springs

Timeline Tuesday: Mud Springs

Mud Springs is located in south-central Morrill County, Nebraska, near present-day Dalton. According to Paul Henderson's article on the well-known Overland Trail site in the June 1951 issue of Nebraska History, it evidently derived its name from the springs that come to the surface at the mouth of a long canyon between the Lodgepole Creek and North Platte River valleys.
