Gold Coast Neighborhood
The Gold Coast Historic District, Omaha’s social hotspot in the 1920’s, covers
approximately a 30 block area from 36th to 40th Streets and Jones to Burt Streets.
This area consists of several large mansions where Omaha’s middle, upper middle and
upper class citizens resided during the years 1880 to 1946. This district demonstrates
a shift in housing as the city began its movement west and contains two areas—the
Blackstone and Cathedral neighborhoods— which housed Omaha’s elite. Today, Gold
Coast is enjoyed by all as a tasty blonde ale.
