2:00 PM  –  3:30 PM

When learning about the founding of Omaha, we often hear the stories of Grenville Dodge, the Kountze Brothers, and Edward Creighton amongst many other male founders.  However, in the words of United States First Lady, Mrs. Abigail Adams we must “remember the ladies”. Hop on a trolley tour with us in honor of the founding ladies of Omaha.  Stop by the site of Anna Wilson’s brothel, one of Omaha’s first controversial businesswomen. Drive through Omaha’s previous “Red Light District” and learn about Omaha’s prostitution ring including the cribs that Josie Washburn mentions in her book as the “worst feature of the district”. Learn about how Omaha was an important city in the Women’s Suffrage Movement that included visits from Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton and how women helped build our city’s businesses, entertainment, charity, and politics.
