Omaha is many things: “the Gateway to the West”; the home to Indigenous peoples, from the Otoe, Pawnee, and Omaha nations; a place for Euro-American expansion and immigrant dreams; the home of Warren Buffet. Lost Treasures of Omaha celebrates the city with nearly 300 entries, ranging from restaurants you knew and loved, like Rose Lodge and its famous fried chicken or Fair Deal Café, the de facto city hall of the Northside, to theaters, drive-ins, and hangouts of days past to Omaha’s icons and curiosities, and plenty in between. What makes a Lost Treasure? It’s always in the eye—or the memory—of the beholder, but Tim and Lisa Trudell highlight places that bring back fond memories and played major roles in the city’s growth. Having written three books about Omaha and Nebraska, Tim and Lisa have learned more about the city they love and call home than they could have ever imagined.
