Omaha Historical

Nebraska, the "Cornhusker State," is located at the crossroads of America near the geographic center of the continental U.S. It will come as no surprise, then, that Nebraska's history reflects the richly varied and complex nature of broader American history. Now, historians, educators, students, and tourists can explore the places, figures, and events that have shaped this history through the "layered, map-based multimedia presentations," of Omaha Historical's website and mobile app. On the page linked above, visitors will find 30 distinct "Stories" on topics such as the "ghost signs" in Omaha's old market district and the numerous historic cemeteries and buildings of Omaha and nearby Lincoln. Also of interest for potential travelers to the state are 10 "Tours," which compile and sequence various locations in Nebraska according to different themes, such as "Sites of Queer Representation in Nebraska," and "A Century of Lead Rain: Omaha's industrial Legacy," which allow users to conduct self-guided visits to these historic places. Omaha Historical is a project of University of Nebraska at Omaha Libraries, featuring student-created content and edited by Jason Heppler, Digital Engagement Librarian and Assistant Professor of History at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
