History of Public Housing Projects in North Omaha

With more than 1,250 public housing units available across North Omaha in the 1980s, it was hard to imagine that just 25 years later almost all of these buildings would be gone—but that’s exactly what happened. This is a history of the projects in North Omaha, including Hilltop and Pleasantview, Spencer Street, Logan Fontenelle, and others including the Myott Park Apartments. Adam, give us a lowdown.
