Learning About East Omaha’s Past

Learning About East Omaha’s Past — As the city of Omaha and real estate developers consider demolishing a historic neighborhood in East Omaha, Adam shares the history of the area, which includes everything from North 14th Street to the river, from Locust Street to the OPPD power plant. In this episode we learn about old towns and roadhouses, more than one airport, the truck farms that used to fill the area and some of the neighborhoods that stubbornly keep existing right now.
