Customers at Holdrege use a new concrete platform built in 2020 that is adjacent to the historic 1910 Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad (CB&Q) depot. During World War II, Holdrege was a major troop activity center and served a nearby prisoner of war camp. Marvin Wescott, a local resident, rescued the brick depot from demolition, had the interior of the building completely restored and installed a new shingle roof in 2002. The building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997 and is used for commercial office space.

Holdrege is named for George Holdrege, a civil engineer, who built the CB&Q as it came through Phelps County. Holdrege is listed among America’s best small towns and is the Phelps County seat. The Nebraska Prairie Museum is located one mile north of the community. It contains a collection of more than one acre of indoor exhibits, including collections of period clothing, antique vehicles and toys, farm equipment, tools and household items.
