Prospect Hill Cemetery and Caretaker Residence (Omaha, NE)
Some of the most prominent people in the development of Omaha are buried among the 15,000 graves dating back to 1858. The caretaker’s residence was built in 1918 at this north Omaha property. The plot itself was developed by Byron Reed, an early Omaha real estate developer. “Not only is this place of significant age, it is a collection of amazing stories of individuals that built our historic city,” says Omaha Landmarks Inc. President Paul Nelson. "It is an extremely beautiful place that is set apart from its surroundings."
