  1. Norfolk was an important stop on the Black Hills Sioux (auto) Trail in the teens and 1920’s. And did you know why the natives of Norfolk pronounce it Norfork? It’s founders wished to call it North Fork and the Post office shortened the name to Norfolk….or so says the 1939 Nebraska edition of the America Guide Series.


    In the 1950’s you would have found US 81 Travel mat paper placemats on the tables at the Flamingo Café in Norfolk, and you could have stayed at the adjoining Flamingo Motel….Any sign of the Flamingo left?
