Nicholas Street Historic District (Omaha, NE)
The National Register District on the edge of North Downtown Omaha represents one of three patterns of industrial development along railroad lines in Midwestern towns which were formed simultaneously with railroads. This district is not yet on the radar or in the typical websites or brochure racks. It is an area on the cusp of redevelopment and also home to Omaha’s Hot Shops, 50 art studios, four art galleries and many exhibition spaces.
