Arthur, Nebraska was founded in 1914 as the seat of the newly formed Arthur County, taking its name from President Chester A. Arthur. At that time, there were no towns within the area that was to make up the county. The community was incorporated as a village in 1944. On the National Register of Historic Places, the Pilgrim Holiness Church, in Arthur, was constructed from straw bales in 1928, as the region had few trees or construction sod. The First Arthur County Courthouse and Jail, built in 1914, was the smallest ever built in the United States. Throughout the summer months, the village maintains the lawns for the entire town. Arthur is south of Hyannis, north of Keystone, and west of Tryon.
