Loup City

Loup City gets its name from the Wolfor Skidi Indian Tribe of the Pawnee Indians who lived in the area. Loup City is the French translation of the Pawnee word “skidi” meaning wolf.

Loup City became the county seat of Sherman County April 1,1873 and was recognized as an organized village in 1881. Sherman County was named for Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman.

Located near the Middle Loup River in central Nebraska, the city has a population of 993. In recent years the community has seen a flurry of activity in development projects including a new school, pool and community center. Recreational areas include Bowman State Recreation Park adjacent to the Middle Loup River one mile west of Loup City, and Sherman Reservoir four miles east.
