Early in 1856, several men living in Columbus, Ohio, dreamed of a bold business venture: the establishment of a town along the route of the proposed transcontinental railway. By March they had formed the "Columbus Town Company," and believing the logical choice for a railroad would be in the wide, flat Platte Valley.
