Nemaha County is tucked along the Iowa border near the southeast corner of the state. Named for an Otoe Indian word that means miry or swampy waters, the Little Nemaha River meanders across the county before flowing into the Missouri River near the town of Nemaha. Nemaha County’s 7,500 residents enjoy scenic river bluffs and the northern tip of Indian Cave State Park. They also claim ownership to McKissick Island, an odd enclave of Nebraska located on the eastern side of the Missouri River. The towns of Peru, Johnson, Auburn and Brownville all call Nemaha County home.
