Hallam Rebuilding Update

Yesterday I left the Symposium in Lincoln for a while and took some pictures of Hallam. Its hard to think its coming up on a year since it happened. It looks like a suburban development zone with all of the new houses and buildings. Here are some of the photos that I took.

Glad to hear they're rebuilding. It would be easy to throw in the towel and give up on your town after a tragedy like that.
 
Nice shots, it is great to hear theyre rebuilding the area, and its hard to believe its been almost a year since then :(
 
Indeed glad to see progress. One thing that will help Hallam is its proximity to Lincoln and Beatrice. While now a treeless landscape, I would suspect the price of a lot ought to be pretty cheap. Probably not as good as the Spencer, SD price of $100 though. One of the buildings left standing was the Irish Pub. Luck of the Irish. When I lived in Wisconsin we joked that any good town has a bar and a post office. I'm sure most here have probably already seen the oroginal damage pics but if not here are a couple links.
