South Omaha People

People journeyed from many distant lands to this prairie village that grew so rapidly it was called The Magic City. South Omaha's stockyards and meat-packing plants were their destination for hope and opportunity. Union Stockyards, founded in 1883, became a major livestock market due to its location adjacent to river and rail transportation.
