Omaha, Nebraska

Omaha’s pioneer period began in 1854 when the city was founded by speculators from neighboring Council Bluffs, Iowa. The city was founded along the Missouri River, and a crossing called Lone Tree Ferry earned the city its nickname, the “Gateway to the West.”

It introduced this new West to the world when in 1898 it played host to the World’s Fair, dubbed the Trans-Mississippi Exposition.
