This episode was recorded in front of a live audience. Our thanks to Lamb of God Lutheran Chruch in Papillion for letting us use their facility.
On Adam’s blog, North Omaha includes all the area in Douglas County, Nebraska, north of Dodge Street and east of North 72nd. In this history of North Omaha, there have been at least a dozen hospitals within these boundaries. They were religious and non-secular; charities and businesses; segregated and mixed race. Some were run by African Americans, others by Jews, and others still by Scandinavians. Today, there is only one left.
