History[edit]

The first settlers to the Naponee area arrived in 1869. Naponee's name originates with Napanee, Ontario, the hometown of a Canadian who fought in the Civil War and bought land along the Republican River. A post office was established in Naponee in 1871.[10] In 1877, the first store opened and was followed by the village's first survey 1879. Railroad service arrived in 1879 with the Burlington Railroad reaching town. Incorporation of the village of Naponee took place on November 30, 1909. Like many places, Naponee suffered in the Great Depression and major dust storms and flooding of the Republican River in 1935 compounded these woes. Construction of the nearby Harlan County Dam in the 1940s nearly doubled the population from 200 to 400. Today Naponee remains a rural community with a stable population.
