Bassett is located in the heart of Nebraska’s Sandhills.  We are a small community of 619 people.  We are surrounded by beautiful scenery of the Sandhills, the Niobrara River, farmland and ranchland.  Bassett has many hunters that come to the area throughout the year to take advantage of our ample hunting grounds.  We have a busy downtown area, which includes a variety store with an old fashioned soda fountain, a craft/gift shop, a grocery store, and various restaurants, just to name a few of the businesses.

Bassett works with existing businesses in helping them to expand as well as work with new businesses that may want to join our town.  We have an active economic development program to assist interested entrepenuers and business owners.

And the number one thing that makes our community great is the people!  The people in Bassett are hard working and care about each other.  We stop and chat when we run into each other at the post office.  Our kids play with the neighbors’ kids while the parents catch up across the fence. 

If you are interested in getting more information about visiting Bassett or looking to relocate to our town, check out our web site for all kinds of helpful information such as Economic Development opportunities, job openings in the area, housing availability, and upcoming community events.  Or email the Economic Development Director, Kristine Galeat

We may be small in number but we are big in making Bassett a great place to live!
