About Us

Douglas is a town of 173 residents, located 25 minutes from the east edge of Lincoln. You will find Douglas to be a friendly, safe town with quick access to country roads for walking, running, walking your dog, or just enjoying the out-of-doors. 

Housing is very affordable, and the village board is actively working to replace some of the older houses in town with lots ready for building. You might want to check out our Homestead Act link to learn just how affordable building in Douglas can be.

Parents can choose to send their children to a number of different schools. Palmyra to the north, Sterling to the South, and Norris to the west are common choices. 

The town has a nice park, a volunteer fire and rescue squad, a post office, two churches, a small library, and neighborhood association that works hard to provide community activities and improvement projects.

More information can be provided at the village office.
