A sign announces Howard (1877, 6,720 feet) as “The Home of 150 Nice People and a Few Soreheads.” The Howard Bridge (1924, Minneapolis Steel and Machinery Company), off U.S. 50 over the Arkansas (NR), is a single-span, Warren pony truss structure. The Stout House (c. 1880, William Stout), located on the west side of U.S. 50 at mile marker 236 east of the town limits, is a two-story stone Italianate home built by a Tennessean who came west after the Civil War to establish a homestead and orchard. A fine old schoolhouse, on Cherry Creek Street (Fremont County 47), and other relics make this a rewarding side trip into the past.
