Palisade, Nebraska Community

     Palisade boasts a Park and Library that are second to none. The park has been renovated on an annual basis and has modern playground and facilities. The Library continues to renovate itself every year and has computers, wi-fi, and e-Books on a 24/7 basis for those that are techno savvy, and reading clubs with coffee and cookies for the not so technologically inclined.
     The population has declined, but today Palisade is known as peaceful and a great place to raise kids. People come together to have benefits for other members in need and are constantly reaching out to help each other. 


In 1931 F.C. Krotter helped develop a 12 acre park which included a lighted ball field, tennis court, picnic area that is home to many activities in the community.


The earliest written records for the Palisade Cemetery was a letter was a letter dated 1923, although there are graves with death dates much earlier. The original Palisade Cemetery is located east and south of Palisade where there are still several graves. This older cemetery was called New Haven. At some point, with family permission, the majority of the graves were moved to the current Palisade Cemetery, which is approximately 2 miles East of Palisade. June 4, 1937 the Village of Palisade acquired the cemetery formally owned by the Palisade Cemetery Association. Although there have been changes over the years, the Village is currently in charge of the cemetery.
