Second Sunday Talks

Second Sundays at DCHS are an opportunity to showcase topics, past and present, that all have direct relevance to Douglas County, Nebraska. Join us in our exploration of the buildings, people, and events that have shaped the community we live in!

Our Second Sunday talks are one-hour in length and feature a guest speaker or panel discussion followed by a question and answer session. Past topics include the Creighton Family, Nebraska’s role in the Civil War, the Blackstone Hotel, and the Standing Bear v. Crook Trial.

Second Sunday talks are free to our members and only $5 for non-members.
