The oldest neighborhoods in the North Omaha community are Florence and the Near North Side, which is immediately north of North Downtown and south of Pratt Street. Other outlying houses and buildings may exist, but are largely hidden by the newer developments around them. Here are ten of the oldest buildings in North Omaha, all built more than 125 years ago.

One thought on “Oldest Houses in North Omaha”
Thank you for your wonderful research on Florence,NE. One thing we can do during this pandemic…is go on a oldest home driving tour in North Omaha. My ancestors came from that area and at one time my 3x great grandfather was the constable sometime between 1889-1894. Have you done any research on the subject of the peace keepers …during this time period. Thank you Kristin Riggle
