Rooted in Diversity
June 27, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Opening Day for DCHS’s latest exhibit is Sunday, June 27th! Come to the General Crook House Museum between 1-4 pm and be the first to see Rooted in Diversity: Douglas County’s Ethnic Heritage.
This year’s exhibit will feature displays highlighting some of Omaha’s many communities, from its earliest settlers, including the Irish and German, to the most arrivals, including the Karenni and Sudanese, who have made Omaha their home. Immigrants come from all over the world and make their way right here, to Douglas County. Many of our churches, businesses, and restaurants have their roots in the ethnic traditions of their founders, and all contribute to Douglas County’s unique character.
Visit the General Crook House Museum and learn more about Douglas County’s roots. Open seven days a week on the lower level.
