Scotts Bluff County, Nebraska
Scotts Bluff County is one of 93 counties in Nebraska. As of 2010, the population was 36,970, making Scotts Bluff the 6th-largest county (by population) in Nebraska. Its county seat is Gering and its largest city is Scottsbluff.
The county is named after a prominent bluff that served as a monument for 19th-century pioneers traveling along the Oregon Trail. The bluff was named after a fur trapper named Hiram Scott who died near the bluff in 1828. The bluff is now managed by the National Park Service as Scotts Bluff National Monument. The town of Gering was founded at the base of the bluff in 1887, and the city of Scottsbluff was founded across the North Platte River from the bluff in 1900. Separated only by the river, the two cities have since grown together and now form the 7th-largest urban area in Nebraska.
