Winter 2016

I hope you enjoy this winter’s issue of the Minne Lusa Messenger. Stay in, stay warm and read a little North Omaha history! Click the following link to download:

This issue starts with a story on Seven Oaks at Notre Dame. Prairie Mechanical built their new building with echos to a past… at Tucker House. Just South of Minne Lusa is the Saratoga neighborhood a.k.a. Sulpher Springs.

We’d like you to meet Eric Ernst at Mouth of the South Restaurant. Lastly, our newsletter would not be complete without insight in “Lifespan” from Matt Baker.




Fall is here…

and so is our newsletter.

We hope you enjoy this fall’s edition of our Minne Lusa Messenger.  Be sure to stop by the Minne Lusa House at 2737 Mary on Saturdays between 9-Noon to pick up a printed copy for you and your neighbors (we believe in sharing good news).

  • Local Artist Donel Keeler
  • 2886 Vane Street – Constructed in 1919
