Located in the heart of the Sandhills, the Hyannis Hotel offers visitors a piece of Nebraska history.
Upon establishment, Hyannis was one of the heaviest cattle shipping points on the Burlington railroad line. The town was also the commercial and social center for a very large area of the sparsely populated western Nebraska. Constructed in 1898, the hotel became a gathering place for people near and far including ranchers who brought their cattle to the railroad for shipment.
The hotel has seen many renovations over the years including considerable alterations to the exterior. Though the appearance of the Hyannis Hotel has changed since the era of the town’s early cattle shipping days, much of its historic flavor is still intact.
