Omaha

ABOUT
Located on the Missouri River, close to the Iowa border, and extending out to the West to the Elkhorn River, Omaha had humble beginnings. Below are some fun facts about the beginnings and early history of Omaha! 

  • Omaha was informally established at a picnic on Capital Hill, the current site of Omaha Central High School, on July 4, 1854. 
  • In 1862, it was decided by President Lincoln that Omaha should become the starting point for the transcontinental railroad; this lead to the formation of Union Pacific Railroad.
  • March 1, 1867, Nebraska became the 37th state in the union. The territorial capital was Omaha but it was decided that the capital be moved to Lancaster, which would later be renamed Lincoln after President Abraham Lincoln, who had recently been assassinated.
  • In 1883, the Union Stockyard Company of Omaha was founded and quickly became a revial of Chicago's Union Stock Yards. By 1955, Omaha reigned supreme as the nation's largest livestock market and meat packing industry until the 1990's. 
  • Omaha was dubbed "The Gateway to the West" and in 1898 played host to The World's Fair. Due to it's central location in the nation, Omaha became a vital transportation hub. 
  • Today, Omaha is the largest city in Nebraska and is home to four Fortune 500 Companies: Berkshire Hathaway, Mutual of Omaha, Kiewit Corporation, and Union Pacific Corporation.
