Fort Omaha Walking Tour
January 1, 2017 - December 31, 2017
Metropolitan Community College’s historic Fort Omaha campus is rich in Nebraska history. Established in 1868, Fort Omaha has served in varying capacities since its origins as a base to quell Indian uprisings. The “Omaha Barracks” became Fort Omaha in 1878 and served as a point of departure from which troops were distributed across the plains to protect supply lines, secure frontier settlements and deter hostilities. Today, Fort Omaha is home to Metropolitan Community College’s vibrant urban campus. A self-guided walking tour of the campus is available year-round for visitors to enjoy the rich history of Fort Omaha.
