Throwback Thursday: Road in Elmwood Park

Happy #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!

This week, we have a black and white photograph of a dirt road in Elmwood Park, located in Omaha. Elmwood Park was established in 1890 with land donated by Lyman Richardson and other citizens of Omaha. The city of Omaha added more property and by 1895 the park covered 210 acres.

This week’s image is owned and published by Omaha Public Library. Items in this collection include early Omaha-related maps dating from 1825 to 1922. Also included are over 1,100 postcards and photographs of the Omaha area.

Check out this collection and many more on the Nebraska Memories archive.

Nebraska Memories is a cooperative project to digitize Nebraska-related historical and cultural heritage materials and make them available to researchers of all ages via the Internet. The Nebraska Memories archive is brought to you by the Nebraska Library Commission.
