Well digging was one of the most active businesses in the county. The owner of a good well could sell water for as high as $.50 per barrel, but many shared freely with their friends and neighbors.

Four Corners Marker - The marker designates where the Nebraska counties of Perkins and Keith and Colorado counties of Juel and Segwick join.

Approximately 20 miles north of state-line road west of Venango
