The Village of Pilger is a small rural community with a population of 378. We have often been referred to as “A Town Too Tough To Die”. Pilger is located in Northeast Nebraska one mile south of the Highway 275/15 South junction in Stanton County. 

The present site of Pilger was taken by Peter Schauble as a homestead. The homestead was then purchased by Peter Pilger. In 1880 the Village of Pilger was platted by the Elkhorn Valley Land and Town Co. On June 11, 1887, the county officially incorporated Pilger as a village.
