Homesteading in Trego County

Trego Center

Germans first arrived in the area in 1882 but years passed before Trego Center became a settlement in 1904.

Beginning in 1905, many Volga Germans from Russell County began acquiring land around Trego Center.

According to Nadine Kroeger, this settlement was south of WaKeeney.
