Belos is what the Nebraska State Gazetteer sain in 1891: Crawford, an important town of 1,000 inhabitants on tow lines of railroads, the F. E. & M. V. R. R. and the G. I. & W. C. R. R., branch of the B. & M. R. R., in the western part of Dawes county, named in honor of Capt. Crawford who was killed by the Indians a few years ago. It is 26 miles from Chadron, the county seat, and three miles east of Fort Robinson, a military post, which to a certain extent is a source, of wealth to the city. A spur of the B. & M. R. R. is about to be constructed from Crawford to Fort Robinson. In the immediate neighborhood are quantities of ore, copper, coal, limestone suitable for building purposes, and clay for brick-making.
