One of the nation's smallest cities, Henderson is located in York County and is populated by fewer than 1,000 residents. Located 63 miles outside of the state capital Lincoln, Henderson is a quiet city retreat from the hustle and bustle, and near enough to the amenities and attractions in Lincoln to make it a worthwhile travel destination.
The annual Christian Music Festival in the city is popular amongst musicians and visitors across Nebraska, and is hosted in June on an annual basis. The German Smorgasbord event that takes place in March annually celebrates the city's ties with German settlers, while the community marks national holidays for Easter, Halloween and the holiday season.
For fishing enthusiasts, Henderson offers a well-stocked lake for sustainable fishing most of the year round. The Mennonite Heritage and Tourism Park just outside Henderson provides family entertainment with an educational message, focusing on early life in Henderson city.
