A Lifetime of Objects: The Story of Byron Reed

A Momentous Collection: Pivotal Moments in Byron Reed’s Lifetime
July 1, 2017 – January 14, 2018
Developed by Durham Museum Intern and University of Colorado-Boulder museum studies MA candidate, Clint Hofeldt

Byron Reed moved to Omaha in 1855, one year after Nebraska became a territory. He established the first real estate company in the city, the success of which allowed him to amass a vast collection of books, documents and rare coins. Reed’s life spanned the 19th century. From national stories of emancipation to the local history of the Nebraska Territory, events are reflected in the breadth of items in his collection. Explore a number of national, local and personal pieces from the Byron Reed collection and learn a bit more about the man who collected them.
