These three distinct neighborhoods are located just north of Dodge Street and Memorial Park. Combined the neighborhoods span from 46th Street to Western Street and from Leavenworth to Seward Street.

History of the Neighborhoods

Dundee was Omaha’s first suburb back in the late 1800’s and continued to grow over the years especially after the construction of Memorial Park in 1948. Dundee is also the place of residence for Omaha’s own Warren Buffett and the birthplace of Nebraskan filmmaker Alexander Payne.

Happy Hollow, located on the western side of Dundee, was also established in the late 1800’s. The lots were originally given out for free to help increase sales and they featured large setbacks allowing for lush landscaping. These lots also allowed for larger homes than what Omaha was used to at the time and those homes have continued to be a popular pick to new and old Omaha residents.

Country Club, located just south of Benson, became popular in the 1920’s and is home to streets lined with mature trees and timeless tudor and Georgian homes. Country Club, Dundee and Happy Hollow have all been placed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
