BUILDING THE CITY: THE FIRST MAYORS OF OMAHA
September 15, 2018 – JANUARY 20, 2019
Jesse Low, Andrew Jackson Poppleton and George Armstrong were among the first Mayors of Omaha and set the city on the path to what it is today. This exhibit uses objects from the Byron Reed Collection to highlight the major struggles of their careers, from gaining the necessary funds to build the original capitol building, to managing the claims club, to gaining land grants to ensure the growth of the city.
