This is a beautifully restored mansion. The furnishings are authentic. Each room is a feast for the eyes. It is on the grounds of a Fort no longer in use. Well worth a visit.

My husband is a historian and we loved the character and history of this home. It is easily accessible and sits in what was once Fort Omaha.

A nice, peaceful step back in time. Quiet, able to take your time and really enjoy each room. The old toys are a delight!

The Douglas Co Historical Society has done a superb job of removing the layers of paint and restoring the old wood. You have to access it in Fort Street and 30th so don't believe your GPS. Don't miss this for late 1800's furniture and architecture.
