Welcome to the Village of Firth, NE
Firth is a great community with a population of just over 600 located in southern Lancaster County, Nebraska, USA. We have a strong community, well-based in the Norris School District, two active churches, two banks, two restaurants, multiple businesses, a beautiful main park with a splash pad, basketball court and playground, a very nice ball field complex, plus lots of opportunities to be involved in the community. All our streets are paved and our water and sewer systems are up to date. Firth has a new housing development with Phase 2 being platted. We are the best kept secret of small communities in Lancaster County. Come visit us, eat at one of our restaurants, play in our parks, or just enjoy the small town atmosphere.
You are always welcome in Firth - a great place to be!
David L. Hobelman
Chairman of the Village Board
