What We Do

The Douglas County Historical Society preserves and enlivens historical insight in Douglas County, Nebraska. We share history through classes, programs, events, the 140-year old General Crook House Museum and our Library Archives Center. As the official caretaker of history for Douglas County, we preserve vital records and help people from all over the world learn about their ancestors from Omaha and Douglas County.

Interesting Info

Our goal is to be the first place people think of when they have a question about Douglas County history.
Our staff members are available to assist with research, photo reproduction, document scanning and archival preservation advice.
The General Crook House Museum, built in 1879 in the Italianate style, has been restored and furnished in its original Victorian splendor.
