Describe present and historic physical appearance.
The Daniel and Sarah Herboldsheimer Ranch, located in Cheyenne County, represents an excellent example of an early Nebraska ranch utilizing stone building material and technology in the High Plains region of the state. The ranch still retains the majority of representative buildings and structures used in the stock raising and wheat growing operations of the Herboldsheimer family beginning in the 1880's. The ranch includes two dwellings, the c. 1905 limestone house, and the c. 1888-1900 log and limestone house. The large stone barn is situated east of the main dwelling and the remaining outbuildings are arranged in an ell-shaped manner. The property also includes a stone corral built by Herboldsheimer in 1900. The nomination consists of eight contributing resources: six buildings, one structure, and one object; and eight noncontributing resources: two buildings and six structures. Structural and historical integrity is uniformly high for all contributing resources.

The property continues to be occupied and operated for agricultural purposes. The Herboldsheimer Ranch is located approximately nine miles northeast of Potter, a small town (1989 population: 369) in Cheyenne County. Cheyenne County is located in the High Plains region in the extreme western part of Nebraska, which geographically supports grain and livestock production. The region is characterized by flat-lying land which is composed of sandstone of stream-deposited silt, sand, clay and gravel overlain with loess. Native vegetation is Buffalo grass (short grass) prairie. Lodgepole Creek and the South Platte River transect the region from west to east. Cheyenne County, one of the largest counties in the state, boasted a huge cattle industry for many years until it experienced a collapse of that business in favor of wheat farming. The Herboldsheimer Ranch is a striking assemblage of late nineteenth and early twentieth century agricultural architecture, noted for its use of limestone in the construction of the majority of buildings in the ranch group.

The ranch is a relatively compact group of buildings efficiently arranged in an ell-shaped manner. Located north of the public road and oriented south and east, the ranch is divided into domestic and agricultural areas by a lane which runs north-south. The domestic functions are located west of the lane, and to the south is the front yard. Agricultural storage and animal facility areas are situated east of the lane in a north-to-south pattern, with the stone milk house serving as the north terminus and the large stone barn serving as the major south terminus. The waterworks area, directly east of the lane, originally included the reservoir, windmill, and well (see site plan). Only the well remains today. Landscape features on the property include only a small number of deciduous trees along the lane (see site plan), and shrub plantings around the main dwelling. The main ranch group is situated on the original 160 acre homestead obtained by Daniel Herboldsheimer in September 1888 from the Union Pacific Railway Company.

This nomination comprises a four acre tract of land that contains all of the representative buildings and structures in the ranch complex. Because the property is being submitted under Criterion "C", only that parcel of land that contains the architecturally significant resources is being nominated. The inventory of principal buildings, structures and objects follows, beginning with those resources that contribute, and followed by those that do not, with their numbers corresponding to the accompanying site plan.

The Herboldsheimer's first house was constructed of sod (no longer extant). The majority of stone buildings originally utilized pole and sod material for roof construction. In 1898, Herboldsheimer excavated a reservoir eight feet deep and lined it with the limestone. Originally located west of the windmill (see site plan), the stone walls were demolished and the reservoir was filled in around 1946. Building remnants of a farrowing house (see site plan) are included on the property, but are not counted in this nomination due to loss of integrity. Integrity is uniformly high for all contributing buildings and structures. Although minor modifications have been made to the dwellings, especially in the interior spaces, structural and historical integrity of the ranch complex, as a whole, is preserved .

The property, although no longer occupied by descendents of the Herboldsheimers, continues to be occupied and operated for agricultural purposes.

Period of Significance Significant Dates Architecture

Significant Person Architect/Builder
Herboldsheimer, Daniel 
The Daniel and Sarah Herboldsheimer Ranch is architecturally significant (Criterion "C") on a state-wide level, as a well preserved example of an early Nebraska ranch. The property is important for its associations with folk building traditions in that it reflects the availability of materials and technology utilized by an early settler in the establishment and development of a ranch in the High Plains region of western Nebraska.

Herboldsheimer, the son of German immigrants, utilized locally available materials, namely stone, to construct the majority of buildings in the ranch complex. The period of significance is derived from the original construction date of the earliest ranch building (1888), through significant later additions (1921), inclusive of all construction dates for contributing ranch buildings and structures.

Daniel Herboldsheimer, son of German immigrants Barthalamews Sabastian Herboldsheimer and Barbara Pfieghardt Herboldshiemer, was born in Cookstown, Pennsylvania on November 2, 1857. Daniel was known to family and friends as Dan Heimer, using his full name only on legal transactions. His family later moved to Guttenburg, Iowa. In 1878, Herboldsheimer homesteaded near Kenesaw, west of Hastings, Nebraska and married Sarah Alice Segraves on January 1, 1880.

In September 1888 Herboldsheimer purchased a quarter section of land northeast of Potter in Cheyenne County from the Union Pacific Railway Company for the sum of $402.00. The 1900 census listed his occupation as a farmer. According to local histories, he raised livestock in the early years of the ranch operation, but later turned to wheat growing. Herboldsheimer died November 27, 1945 and was buried in the Potter cemetery.

Geographical Data Acreage of property, 4 acres-
The property is described as a square tract.of land commencing at a point at the extreme southwest corner of the southwest quarter of Section 7, Township 15 North, Range 51 West, thence running North 417.5 feet, thence east 417.5 feet, thence south 417.5 feet, thence west 417.5 to the point of beginning, a rural legal description in Cheyenne County, Nebraska.

Because of the scarcity of timber in "treeless" counties such as Cheyenne, the most readily available construction material was sod. Its use was widespread by early settlers who set up homesteads on the prairie lands, and needed basic shelter. As families became better established, some of them desired more substantial dwelling houses constructed of permanent materials, such as log or stone. Limestone outcroppings, located along Lodgepole Creek and its tributaries, provided a source of building material and found favor with settlers in Cheyenne County.

The Herboldsheimer ranch house illustrates the chronology of this housing pattern: their first home, a soddy, was replaced following construction of the log dwelling (c. 1888). That same year, Herboldsheimer began building with the locally available limestone. The closest source was over five miles south at Point of Rocks, so the burdensome task of quarrying and hauling the stone was necessary before he could begin construction. The stone was also used in later additions to the log dwelling and in construction of the main dwelling house. Stone was also used in constructing the barn, most of the outbuildings, and the corral. Architecturally significant, the Herboldsheimer Ranch represents an excellent example of a Nebraska ranch, retaining the majority of buildings used in the stock raising and wheat farming operations of the Herboldsheimer family beginning in the 1880's. The ranch buildings are important for their associations with folk building traditions. Herboldsheimer, the son of German immigrants, utilized his own masonry skills and readily available materials, namely limestone, to construct his buildings. The most notable building on the ranch is the one-story log and stone dwelling. The house was built in various construction stages.

The original house was log (c. 1888), with later construction episodes utilizing smooth-faced rubble stone (1895) and rock-faced ashlar stone (c. 1900).

 In Nebraska the house stands as an important product of folk architecture. These folk houses were strongly influenced by geography, and constructed of materials found in the proximity of the building site. In many cases, the native materials were quarried and prepared by the builders themselves. Because of the availability of building materials from one locale to another, as well as building traditions settlers brought with them, the structure and form of these folk houses varies from region to region (McAlester, 1984, p. 63). The Herboldsheimer house remains today as a product of folk building traditions in Nebraska; it reflects the availability of native limestone as building material in the High Plains region, and illustrates the building skills used by an early settler in the preparation and treatment of the stone.

The 1984 Nebraska Historic Buildings Survey (NEHBS) of Cheyenne County identified five similar ranch properties which utilized stone construction for the majority of buildings. They include the Gunderson Homestead (NEHBS # CN00-5), the William Kidney Homestead (CN00-13), the F.W.'Krueger, Jr. Ranch (CN00-31), the Adams Ranch (CN00-32), and the Herboldsheimer Ranch. For the most part, stone construction was found in the valley area along the major stream, Lodgepole Creek, which runs east-west through the county. At the time of the survey, the integrity of these ranch groupings, for the most part, was poor, with many buildings abandoned and in deteriorated condition.

The Herboldsheimer Ranch exhibits a high degree of integrity and in comparison to other surveyed ranch properties, contains a concentration of stone buildings and structures in its agricultural group. On a regional level, the Herboldsheimer property represents one of the best examples of a stone ranch complex. Cheyenne county, in comparison to other counties in the High Plains region, contains a large number of agricultural complexes utilizing stone construction for the majority of buildings. Although stone construction was identified in other counties, these properties were generally cases in which only single stone buildings were recorded, either as part of a larger ranch complex or as the only surviving structure of a rural grouping. The Herboldsheimer ranch gains further importance due to the survival of the stone corral. Constructed of smooth-faced rubblestone, the corral represents an excellent example of a stone wall system found in a ranch complex. Although remnants of stone corrals have been identified through the NEHBS, none compare to the nature and condition of the Herboldsheimer corral.

To date., twelve Nebraska farms or ranches have been listed in the National Register: the Thomas Majors Farmstead (NEHBS #NH09~ 10), the Retzlaff Farmstead (LC00-22), the Peter Peterson Farmstead (LC00-21) and the Kehlbeck Farmstead (CC00-36), all located in the Southeast Region of the state; the Knoell-Bang Farmstead (DD00-50) and the Zavadil Farmstead (CD00-9), Northeast region; the Jeffery Farmstead (YK00-2), and the Pisar Farmstead (SA00-3), Central Plains region; the George Gather Farmstead (WT00-13) and the Pavelka Farmstead (WT00-104), Republican Valley region, the VJarner Ranch (BN00-29), Scotts Bluff region; and the Spade Ranch (SH00- 30), Pine Ridge region.

The Herboldsheimer Ranch is the first agricultural property to be nominated in the High Plans region of Nebraslca. Today, the property represents an important Nebraska ranch type in that it reflects the availability of materials and technology utilized by an early settler in the establishment and development of a ranch in the High Plains region of western Nebraska. The ranch type is associated with the agricultural context: High Plains Cash Grain and Livestock Production.

Hubert Hilton Herboldsheimer, 96, of Peetz, CO died Monday, September 22 after enjoying a long, happy, blessed life. Hubert, the eldest child of Charles Philip Herboldsheimer and Anna Margaret (Larson) Herboldsheimer was born on March 10, 1912 near Sidney Nebraska. He grew up in Potter Nebraska and farmed with his parents until his marriage to Luella Eveline McKinney on October 1, 1936. Hubert and Luella lived south of Potter until the spring of 1939 when they moved to an unimproved farm which they had purchased fifteen miles northwest of Peetz. They continued to build and improve their farm and lived there until 2006 when Hubert moved to Devonshire Acres in Sterling. Being an advocate of soil conservation, his goal as a farmer was to leave the land in better shape than he found it. In 1983, Hubert and son Craig received the Soil Conservationist Award of the year from the Centennial Soil Conservation District. Hubert served for several years on the Board of Appeals of his Soil Conservation District and also as a member of the Board of Supervisors of the Logan County Weed Control District when it was first formed. Hubert has always been interested in education and was a member of the school board of his neighborhood school district #70 which was consolidated later with the Peetz school district. In the early sixties he served on a committee of Logan County citizens in charge of reorganizing the school districts of Logan County. After a year of meetings and hearings this committee formed the new districts as they exist today. In 1968, he was appointed to fill the vacancy on the Northeastern Junior College Governing Board and was re elected and served in that position for nine years. He was also appointed as a member of the Board of Trustees of the newly formed Northeastern Junior College Foundation where he served three terms. In later years a dorm was named honoring Hubert for his service. Hubert was community minded and served in many ways. He was a member of the Peetz Cooperative Telephone board and served for a number of years as a member of the board of directors of the Peetz Farmers Cooperative elevator. In 2002 Hubert and Luella were honored as Pioneers of Logan County and then also as parade marshals of "For Peetz Sake Days". An important part of his life was being an active member of the Peetz United Methodist church. Hubert loved to fly. He held a private pilot's license for 25 years. Taking passengers on their first ride in his Cessna 170 as well as checking the cows and looking over the farm was a joy for him. He and Luella enjoyed traveling in their RV and over the years had visited every state and nearly every province of Canada. Hubert is survived by his beloved wife, Luella, of nearly 72 years; son Richard (Evelyn Herboldsheimer of Sidney NE; daughter Deanna (David) Ross of Peetz CO; son Craig (Rece Ann) Herboldsheimer and wife of Peetz CO; daughter Candice (Dick) Kahl of Powell WY; 10 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren; siblings: Kinley Herboldsheimer of Acton MA and Vivian Willoughby of Cheyenne, WY. Preceding Hubert in death were one sister, five brothers and one great-grandchild.

Hubert H. Herboldsheimer Honored by Northeastern Jr. College, Sterling Co.

Dedicated to Herbert Herboldsheimer, Peetz, CO.
Herboldsheimer and Giacomini honored by NJC
March 19, 2007

At the recent 13th Annual Hoops Homecoming hosted by Northeastern Junior College, Hubert Herboldsheimer and Judy Giacomini were honored by receiving the Service Award presented by the Alumni Association. This award is given to an active member of the Alumni Association each year who has demonstrated outstanding service toward the goals and accomplishments of the Association through significant contributions of time and work. ...

Hubert Herboldsheimer was born on March 10, 1912 and raised near Potter, Nebraska. He graduated from high school in 1929 and attended Nebraska Westlyn College in Lincoln, Nebraska for one year. He then returned home and began farming. He and his wife Luella were married in 1936 and celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary last October. They have two sons, two daughters, ten grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren and two great great grandchildren.

In 1939 they bought two sections of land Northeast of Peetz, Colorado. There were no fences or improvements on the land. They bought an old house for $260 and moved it 35 miles with two tractors and a truck. They drilled a water well that pumped three quarts a minute. Their first wheat crop made seven bushels per acre and brought 50 cents a bushel. They bought 600 ewes and the lambs eventually paid for the farm. Hubert and Luella sold the sheep and started a cow-calf operation in 1958. Hubert was the first farmer in the area to utilize diagonal strip cropping on his wheat land.

Over the years, the Herboldsheimers have enjoyed traveling. They have visited all 50 states and all but two of the provinces in Canada. They are active members of the Peetz Methodist Church. Hubert was named a member of the first Pest Control District when it was formed.

Hubert has many fond memories of the years when he was associated with Northeastern Junior College and counts them as what he says “were the best time of my life! I worked with so many wonderful people that I never would have met otherwise.” Hubert served nine years as a member of the NJC Foundation. He was also elected to serve on the College Board of Trustees from 1968 to 1977.

Shortly after he completed his term on the Board, North Residence Hall was renamed Herboldsheimer Hall. Over the years, the building has been affectionately referred to as “Herbie Hall” by students and others.

In the past few years, Hubert has attended an annual spring fling event on campus at his hall called “Herbie Goes Bananas!” The event includes the building and eating of a 20 feet long banana split. Each year he is presented with a special “Herbie Goes Bananas” shirt and he’s given an opportunity to share with some of the students what his responsibilities were at the college when he was a trustee. He has given these later generations an appreciation for what his volunteer leadership has meant to NJC. ...

A. Herboldsheimer - Civil War- Company K (Topeka Battery), Shawnee County, Kansas

History of Shawnee County, Kansas, and Representative Citizens
Civil War
Second Kansas Regiment of militia-
"Company K (Topeka Battery)Ross Burns*, captain; Tobias Billings and Charles H. Wyckoff,* lieutenants; Charles H. Gibson, ist sergeant; James Anderson*, John Armstrong*. John S. Branner*, Justus Brockway, Nicholas Brown*, Charles H. Budd*, Daniel Copson, J. F. Cummings, Dan- iel Dawson, John Devine, William Farren, R. Fitzgerald. J. E. Follansbee*, Guilford G. Gage*, C. K. Gilchrist, George Ginnold*, Daniel Handley*, Nathan Harvey, A. Herboldsheimer. J. H. Holman*. Ben Hughes*, A. "

In the list of men in the Topeka Battery only those designated by stars* were with Captain Burns in the same battle, the others remaining in Topeka to guard the city.

Note- A. Herboldsheimer without *. It appears that A. Herboldsheimer was one of those remaining in Topeka to guard the city.

"In October 1864, Topekans erected a stockade of cottonwood logs for protection against Price's raid. The flimsy roofless structure was derisively called "Fort Folly" by citizens who pointed out that it would be scant protection against artillery. The Second Regiment of the Kansas State Militia, however, engaged in a bloody skirmish with Price's forces at the Big Blue River near Kansas City, Missouri. The regiment, composed of men from Topeka and Shawnee County under the command of Col. George Veale, met a vastly superior enemy force on October 22. Although forced to retreat, the regiment inflicted severe losses and helped to check Price's advance. The Topeka battery, attached to the regiment as Company K, took up a position in a lane near the crossing of the river where they repulsed two spirited cavalry charges but succumbed to a third. Eight men were killed, four wounded, and ten, including Captain Ross Burns, were taken prisoner. Burns stood by his piece until he was clubbed into insensibility and dragged from the field."
