National Register Nominations
Do you need to research the history of your property? Get it locally landmarked? Nominate it for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places? Determine if you’re eligible to apply for state and federal historic tax credits?
Restoration Exchange Omaha can help. Our services include:
- Determining a property’s age and integrity. Is it old enough to be considered historic (generally at least 50 years old)? Does it still look the way it did when it was built?
- Determining a property’s significance. Is it associated with events, activities or developments that were important in the past? Were the people who lived there or who owned it important in the past? Does it have a significant architectural history or landscape history or engineering achievements?
- Researching the history of a property.
- Finding historical images of a property.
- Writing and presenting nominations.
Our track record speaks for itself:
- REO researched, wrote and presented the National Register nomination for the Hupmobile Building, built in 1917 at 2523 Farnam St. The building was recognized for its architectural significance and cultural association with Omaha’s “automobile row.”
- REO researched, wrote and presented the National Register nomination for The Polish Home, built in 1916 at 25th and L streets. The building was recognized for its long association with the civic life and social history of the South Omaha community and its Polish-American community in particular. It has served as the home of El Museo Latino since 1988.
- REO researched, wrote and will present the National Register nomination for the Danish Brotherhood in America (DBA) building. The two-story, early postmodern office building with Danish architectural details was constructed in 1966 at 3717 Harney St. It was once the national headquarters for the DBA, a Danish-American benevolent society and insurance company.
- REO worked with Mead & Hunt and the City of Omaha Planning Department to provide images and information for the historic review of properties in the Aksarben neighborhood.
- REO worked with Alley Poyner Macchietto Architecture to share research and photographs for the Minne Lusa National Register Historic District nomination and the North 24th National Register Historic District nomination.
- REO worked with The Architectural Offices to write Part 1 and Part 2 of the state and federal historic tax credit forms to provide funding for the former White Rose Gas Station/McFoster’s restoration by Dundee Bank.
