About Us

Alma is a city of progressive citizens, great schools, a stable economy, fresh air, clean water, safe neighborhoods, high-quality medical care, enthusiastic community spirit, and weather of all seasons.

Our city is defined less by boundaries on a map than by the sense of shared values our residents hold dear.  We take pride in maintaining a wholesome lifestyle, rich in cultural history, along with a deep commitment to the preservation of our environment and a progressive approach to local business. 

Alma is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages as nearby Harlan Reservoir's recreation area provides year-round enjoyment. Hunting, fishing, boating and camping are popular activities for any Alma visitor.

Alma's tranquil lakeside setting, quality downtown merchants and friendly residents make it the ideal vacation, relocation and retirement community.

We thank Nebraska Rural Living for providing a short video of our community.  Please be sure to browse their site and the many things offered in Alma and the rest of rural Nebraska.  Click here for a trip around Alma.
