The magnificent residence overlooking the Republican valley from its location on the summit of a hill to the westward of Concordia, is the home of Colonel N.B. Brown, one of Cloud county's distinguished citizens. On a fine summer day the landscape, as seen from this imposing site, is one of rare and picturesque beauty. Looking down upon the city to the east are handsome homes, public buildings, churches, with their spires gleaming in the sunlight, almost hidden within a forest of trees and shrubbery. To the west and north the productive and fertile valley of the Republican river stretches far beyond, and outlined against the sky is a terraced line of purple hills, marvelous panorama of natural beauty and one of the most enchanting views of the entire valley.
