Lincoln County Seat, Hugo, was incorporated in 1909 but was developed in the late 1850’s. There seems to be a couple version’s of who the town was named after, this I find most interesting because one person was Hugo Richards, and the other was Richard Hugo.Interesting facade on the basic structure of the County Courthouse. The area of this town of 800 people is exactly one square mile.One of the most interesting things in town is this “roundhouse” where several train cars can be brought in for repairs and spun around when fixed. The roundhouse is currently undergoing renovations to be a community center and museum.State of the art medical facility has its own helicopter, it is 100 miles in any direction to the next closest hospital.Even the city park has classic rides. The community swimming pool here is on the National Registry of Historic Places.Once again I have learned a valuable lesson in “antiquing” I wanted a fish but it was to big to carry around so I told the proprietor I found something but did not tell her what it was, I figured it was safe with thousands of items and few customers. After checking a couple other establishments I decided on the fish and went back to the store to find a local woman completing the purchase of MY fish! I couldn’t believe it, we had a fun conversation and it sounds like I would be eligible for visitation if I choose to pursue it. I ended up giving $5 for a silver plated soap holder.Everyone I came in contact with here was friendly and interesting. It was the grand opening of a new Subway sandwich place so that seemed to be creating all the buzz. The only other restaurant in town was Jean’s which is where I went for my burger.Locally sourced Buffalo burger is the signature sandwich at Jean’s. The service was prompt and friendly (like every person I met here) The burger was just what you look for from standard local diner. Fresh condiments, grilled burger and bun with old school atmosphere.
