Welcome to the
City of Peru

A quiet town nestled in the hills along the Missouri River.


A Small Town

With A Big Purpose

History tracing back to Nebraska's beginnings.

Home of Nebraska's first college, Peru is host to nearly 2,000 Peru State College students each year. Downtown Peru provides all the necessities of small-town life, including a restaurant, grocery store, bank and nightlife.


Building Our Future

Here you will find a community that is proud of its past and excited about its future. Flooding and economic hardship have impacted the community, but that hasn't stopped those with a love of Peru from coming together to find a solution. Residents, college students and administration are all working together to ensure brighter days ahead.
