The small village of Harrison, Nebraska is the county seat of Sioux County. Platted in 1886, when the Fremont, Elkhorn and Missouri Railroad reached that point, Harrison was originally known as Bowen. The village was later renamed Harrison, for Benjamin Harrison, who was elected the 23rd president of the United States a couple of years later. Dwight Griswold, the 25th governor of Nebraska, was born in Harrison, and attended the public schools there. Harrison is situated along Route 20, east of Van Tassell and west of Crawford, in northwestern Nebraska, not far from the state’s borders with Wyoming and South Dakota.
