Founded as a frontier city and gateway to the west in 1854, Omaha grew as a national transportation hub due to its central location and position on the Missouri River. The city is home to diverse ethnic enclaves, including many Eastern Europeans, Russians, Germans and Africans, and is home to the largest Sudanese population in the United States. Omaha has a variety of national landmarks, including churches, historic homes, livestock exchanges and even a castle. European influences, especially German, can be seen in the city’s numerous breweries, and Little Italy is a thriving downtown district. Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo is ranked as one of the best in the world, and its Durham Museum is affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution and frequently hosts traveling exhibits.
