The Story

Minne Lusa Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in April of 2014. Years of effort have been put into bringing new life to this important North Omaha neighborhood.

For 100 years, this neighborhood has been home to families and individuals who have contributed to the hardworking character of Omaha. In the past, the neighborhood had been affected by the socioeconomic struggles of North Omaha. However, neighbors have rallied together recently to highlight the strong sense of community and history that makes this neighborhood unique in Omaha.

Minne Lusa is the largest bungalow district between Chicago and Pasadena, with more than 80% of its nearly 800 homes being true bungalows or bungalow variations. In an effort to continue restoring the sense of community pride and to properly identify the district, we are raising funds to design, build, and install proper signage throughout the neighborhood.

Minne Lusa Historic District celebrates our 100th year in 2015. We intend to install the signage as part of our Centennial Celebration, but we need your help and support.

Wow, thank you to all of our terrific supporters! We're moving along towards our goal of funding the installation of our new signs for the neighborhood. Don't miss an opportunity to be a part of this. Someday, your grandkids will be trying to buy a home here. You'll be able to point at the signs that welcome them to the neighborhood and tell them that you helped do that.

We've gotten our second design to choose from. Please feel free to leave us a note with your donation to tell us which sign you would prefer to see installed!

Remember that 500 people giving $5 per month for 5 months would total $12,500. This would more than fund our campaign. You don't need to have a PayPal account to give. Just use your credit card or your debit card and checkout as a guest. If you would prefer to send cash, check, precious stones, or gold bars, you may send your donation to 2737 Mary Street, Omaha, NE 68112. All checks can be made out to "Minne Lusa."

Thanks again for your vision and support! We can't do this without you!

We are over the $1,000 mark which puts us about 10% of the way to our goal. Thank you to all who have donated so far.

We are waiting for our second design proposal from SignWorks who has been helping us with this project. As soon add we have the second design, we would love to hear your feedback on which style you would rather see on the Boulevard.

We're excited! How about you?

We have finally received our first formal design of the proposed signage that we are raising funds for. We will post pictures of any additional proposed designs as we get them in.

Please feel free to let us know what you think!

Thank you SO SO much to our current supporters. If you have not yet joined us as a supporter, there's still time.

Remember, please consider giving $5 per month for 5 months. This is only a commitment of $25, but if we can get 500 people on board, we will have raised $12,500 in just 5 short months.

Any donations is welcomed and appreciated! We love you guys!
