The campus of the University of Nebraska at Kearney is located in the city, and has an annual student population of nearly 7,000. Also located here is the Museum of Nebraska Art, the state's official art collection. Just 2 miles east of town, The Great Platte River Road Archway Monument, spanning Interstate 80, is a museum paying tribute to the area's pioneer history. It was featured in the movie About Schmidt. Just west of town is a housing subdivision know as The 1,733 Estates. This point marks the halfway point between Boston and San Francisco.

The city is also home to the Tri-City Storm, a USHL team, and formerly the Nebraska Cranes, which were the 2006 USBL Champions. Both teams play their games at the FirsTier Events Center, a large arena built originally to house the hockey team. With seating for 5,000, the arena has had the added effect of attracting various big name performers to the city. Previous guests have been Bob Dylan, Larry the Cable Guy, Jeff Foxworthy, Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, and the Harlem Globetrotters.

Two microbreweries, Thunderhead Brewing and The Platte Valley Brewery are located in downtown Kearney. In 2004, Thunderhead Brewing was awarded a World Beer Cup Gold Medal for Coffee Flavored Beer for its Espresso Stout.

History

The city was named after nearby Fort Kearny (with an extra "e" added, but pronounced the same), a United States Army outpost along the Oregon Trail in the middle 19th century that was itself named after Col. and later General Stephen W. Kearny. The "e" was added by mistake sometime afterwards by postmen who consistently misspelled the town name. Eventually it just stuck. The current location of the city is on the North side of the Platte River and thanks to the railroad steadily grew.

Recent growth in the city has been dramatic. Each year, Kearney gains about 1,000 more residents and this creates a very lively construction market. The city is expanding quickly to the North, East, and West. The biggest employers in the city are the Good Samaritan Hospital and the University of Nebraska at Kearney. Other major employers include The Buckle Corporate Headquarters, Eaton Corporation, Baldwin Filters, Coleman Powermate, and West Company Pharmaceuticals.
