The village of South Omaha, incorporated in 1886, grew to 8,000 residents by 1890. Originally settled by German, Irish and Scandanavian immigrants, the turn of the century saw Poles, Czechs and other eastern European families flood the area seeking jobs. Once known as the “Magic City,” South Omaha was heavily influenced by the formation of the Union Stockyards Company and the meat processing industry. Tour goers can learn, shop and experience life in Omaha’s “melting pot.”
The cost is $10 per person or $15 per couple. Groups that would like to schedule a private tour should contact Vince Furlong, REO’s walking tour coordinator.
