Arbor is an unincorporated community in Lancaster County, Nebraska, in the United States.[1]

History[edit]

Arbor may be named from Arbor Lodge, the estate of Julius Sterling Morton, the 3rd United States Secretary of Agriculture.[2] However, another source speculates that Arbor was likely named for the trees lining the town site.[3] Arbor had a post office from 1894 until 1900.[4]
