    Omaha, city, seat () of Douglas county, eastern Nebraska, U.S. It is situated on the west bank of the Missouri River opposite Council Bluffs, Iowa. Omaha is Nebraska’s biggest city and a regional manufacturing, transportation, trade, and service hub. From the s through the midth century.   Louis Bostwick played an essential role in chronicling Omaha’s history from about to the early s. In a way, his images provide a “family album” for Omaha, said Bill Gonzalez, a Durham Museum staff member who works with the Bostwick collection. Bostwick snapped photographs in an era when few people took pictures.

    A treaty with the Omaha tribe opened the area for settlement in the same year. The city was developed along the beautiful Missouri River and is only miles from Chicago. Interestingly, the name Omaha in Native Indian means those treading against the current or wind. Omaha's role in military history dates from when "Omaha Barracks" was established to protect railroad workers and settlers. When the headquarters of the Department of the Platte was moved to this location in , it was designated "Fort Omaha.".
