Tarnov is a village in Platte County, Nebraska, United States. The population was 46 at the 2010 census.

History[edit]

Tarnov was laid out in 1889.[6] A large share of the early settlers being natives of Tarnów, Poland, caused the name to be selected.[7]

A post office was established at Tarnov in 1891, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1969.[8]

On Aug. 19, 1943, the U.S. Army dropped seven practice bombs on Tarnov, mistaking it for either the Stanton Bombing Range, which was located 25 miles to the northeast, or a bombing range to the southwest, near Silver Creek. The B-17s, from the Sioux City, Iowa Army Air Field, did little damage and no one was injured or killed. [9]
