Nonpareil is an unincorporated community in Box Butte County, Nebraska, in the United States.[1]

History[edit]

A post office was established at Nonpareil in 1886, closed in 1894, reopened in 1925 and reclosed in 1946.[2] Nonpareil was named after the "Nonpareil type" because like the type, the settlement was very small.[3]
