 Nemo History

Custer’s 1874 Black Hills Expedition was possibly the first of white men to traverse the area’s rugged terrain. En route back to Fort Abraham Lincoln after exploring the Southern Hills, Custer’s expedition camped west of Nemo while scouts looked for a pass through the limestone canyon walls. Their exit route is now known as Custer Gap.

Various theories have developed about the origination of the Nemo name. Some old timers say it was derived from Jules Verne’s 1864 subterranean fantasy, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea; others claim it’s an Indian word meaning ‘nowhere’ and still a third faction maintains it’s ‘omen’ spelled backwards.
