The city was incorporated here in Reno County on June 7, 1879, with a current population that is around 1040. Nickerson has a Chamber of Commerce, EMS, Library, Recreation Commission, Post Office, Senior Center and a County Fire Department.
There are several events that the citizens can get involved with throughout the year. We have a nice city park that offers a quiet area for family reunions, picnicking, or a place to take you children to play. The park has barbeques, water, restrooms, electricity access, sheltered picnic area, playground, basketball court, volleyball courts, a splash pad and is across the street from the baseball diamonds.
For your convenience there is a local grocery store, dining establishments and area churches.
Please feel free to contact the city office about any questions you may have.
