Step-On Tours

Let DCHS take you on a tour of Omaha that you will never forget! Our trained guides will let you in on Omaha’s sometimes naughty, sometimes nice history with humorous tales of the people and places that have shaped our city.

Douglas County Historical Society can help you create a sightseeing excursion that will please even the most passionate history buff with our customizable Step-On Tours. We can arrange guided bus or walking tours of the Historic Fort Omaha or greater Omaha areas that specifically cater to your groups’ interests. Whatever route you choose, our guides will share fascinating and often humorous facts about the area.

For instance, the wagon ruts to Harrison Johnson’s homestead became St. Mary’s Avenue, the only angled street in Omaha’s downtown grid pattern. Anna Wilson, the popular Madame of Omaha’s “fallen doves” at the turn of the century, was one of Omaha’s earliest and most generous philanthropists, giving to both children and medical services.

We absolutely loved the history presented by the Douglas County Historical Society on their Step-On-Tours.
