   Hickman is a small community located just south of Lincoln proper on South 68th Street. Hickman is poised for continued growth and improvement while keeping its small town atmosphere and quality of life committments while being just north of the Norris Schools Complex.  Surrounded by the beauty of several State of Nebraska Recreational Areas including Wagon Train Lake, Stagecoach Lake, Hedgefield Lake and Blue Stem Lake.

   Hickman is also located close enough to the state capitol in Lincoln, Nebraska, for all the larger city amenities. Our location just south of Lincoln and immediately north of the Norris Schools #160 Complex. Hickman is one of the fastest Smart Growth Communities in Nebraska.

   The plat for our community was filed by founders Rev. R.C. Heckman and Samuel Egger and was intended to be named Heckman. However, in the recording procedures, the spelling was recorded as "Hickman" and it has remained so.

The yearly town celebration, Hickman Hayday, continues a long tradition, which occurs the last Saturday of July. The South Lancaster County Fair was held in the Hickman Park in 1894 and a yearly celebration of some type has been held since the first Old Settlers Picnic in 1899.

Hickman's Infrastructure has been maintained and improved over the years with current improvements to the WasteWater Treatment plant in 1998 and currently in 2007, Sewage Line Improvements in 2001, and Water Main Replacement and Downtown Street Resurfacing in 2003. Multiple diverse Housing Developments, along with quality of life enhancements have made Hickman a pleasant blend of the old and the new.
