The history of South Omaha
In 1886, on the banks of the Missouri River just to the south of the city of Omaha, Nebraska, the city of South Omaha was incorporated. Nearly twenty years later, in 1915, South Omaha was annexed by the city of Omaha. To this day, however, the area is still referred to as South Omaha, or more commonly by those in the community, simply "South O." Immigrants from around the world have made their homes in South Omaha. Early immigrants came from Ireland, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Italy, Greece, Lithuania, and other European countries. Immigrants followed from Mexico and other Latin American countries and most recently South Omaha has welcomed immigrants from Sudan.
