140th Anniversary Frontier Dinner

As part of the 140th celebration of the General Crook House, DCHS is offering Frontier Dinners throughout the year. Choose your day and come learn about the history and restoration of the Crook House!


The year is 1879 and Fort Omaha just built a fine Italianate style house, known as Quarters One, for its revered Army General and successful Plains Indian Fighter, General George Crook. To celebrate, General George and Mary Crook invite you to join them for dinner in their home. Guests will be welcomed into the elaborate double entry doors into the beautifully decorated main hallway, then escorted into the formal dining room where they will be treated to a meal prepared by the Army’s Mess Hall cooks. Afterwards, guests will enjoy a full docent-led tour of the Crook House and experience the splendor of each room.
