Hi Jennifer,

I can get you started with this. One place you might look is the Nebraska Historical Society's Reconnaissance Surveys for Omaha. They can be found here: http://www.nebraskahistory.org/histpres/reports/

You might also try searching the catalog for su:Architecture Nebraska Omaha or su:Omaha (Neb.) Buildings, structures, etc. You will find some of the surveys from the Nebraska Historical Society linked in the catalog as well.

Also the city of Omaha webpage has information on architects and styles of city landmarks: http://www.cityofomaha.org/planning/landmarks/landmarks-home

Finally, you should try Historic American Buildings Survey from the Library of Congress. http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/hh/ If you run a search for "omaha" and then select the box "surveys only" you can often get quite a bit of info on the buildings such as the architectural drawings.

Hopefully this will get you started. I will also let Jim Shaw, our history librarian know about your question. He may have additional information.

Katie
