I spoke with the people who now own the land and they informed me there has been nothing left for some time now. although it wasnt a total loss...found and abandon house and an old truck outside of union

I don't suppose anyone has a good latitude and longitude for where downtown Minersville used to be?

Hey I think I know that house and truck outside of Union, a friend of mine owns that property, I think anyway.... I live in Union and it's on it's way to being a ghost town or atleast a living ghost town lol

I have been looking at it too. as a place close by. I havent been there yet, but I have been told all the buildings aer gone, they were torn down to make room for corn and beans, it was a pretty good size area. I live about 10 miles form there and plan to go and see if anyone whol ives there, knows where the cemetery is. If you go to Google and type in Minersville Nebraska and use maps and use satelite view, It is south of the OPPD power plant near where the Grain evevators stand.
