Brady (Nebraska)

Brady is a small town in rural Lincoln County in Nebraska.


Brady, a town of 375 once called Brady Island, was given its name by John Fremont. While exploring Nebraska, he found some trappers on an island 15 miles east of the forks of the Platte River. Their leader was a man called Brady, so Fremont marked his map "Brady's Island."
