The Hub is a unique and richly symbolic name for a company that produces a newspaper and an array of other information products, such as kearneyhub.com. The word is short and strong, conjuring many positive images. By definition, it means being at the center of things, exactly where a good newspaper and its website belong.
For our part of the world, the wagon wheel hub has even greater meaning. Kearney was an important stop on the Platte River Valley thoroughfare that led to the settling of much of the West. Others came, saw the valley and surrounding fertile lands, and made a home here. To all of them, the wagon wheel became a symbol of their journeys and their new life.
Today, the term Hub also relates to the city of Kearney's position as a center of commerce, education, and health care for Nebraska. The area served by Kearney includes several of the fastest growing counties in Nebraska and contains a diverse mix of agriculture, manufacturing, retail, outdoor recreation, education and health care services. The city of Kearney is home to the University of Nebraska at Kearney, Good Samaritan Hospital, the Museum of Nebraska Art, Fort Kearny State Park and Recreation Area, the renowned annual migration of the sandhill cranes, the Viaero Event Center, and the Great Platte River Road Archway, a $60 million interactive historical exhibit spanning Interstate 80.
