Sebeka got it’s start in 1878, but wasn’t incorporated until 1898. The Anderson Pioneer Store was the first store in Sebeka and as early as 1891, Sebeka had a sawmill, a general store and a large log hotel that became a popular meeting place.

For more details on Sebeka’s rich history, purchase a copy of “Pages of Time” published in 1998 to commemorate Sebeka’s 100th year anniversary as a city. The books are available at Ernie’s Market, Security State Bank, and the Review-Messenger. All proceeds from the book go to the Dollars for Scholars program.
