Minatare, Nebraska is a city in Scotts Bluff County. Established in 1887, the community was initially named Tabor. When the railroad bypassed Tabor in 1900, the town moved and was renamed Minatare, for a sub-branch of the Sioux Indians known as Minnataree, who lived in the area. Minatare was incorporated in 1900. Prior to its settlement, Mormon travelers had come through the area, as they crossed the plains in 1847, but the first known permanent settler in the region was George W. Fairfield, a surveyor who filed claim to land there in 1885. Minatare borders Scottsbluff on the northwest and Melbeta to the south. Bridgeport is southeast of Minatare.
