Welcome to Historic Blackstone, Where Old Meets New

The Blackstone Neighborhood Association’s purpose is to protect the historical buildings within our boundaries, preserve the wonderful heritage and stories of those who lived within this area during Omaha’s early years, and foster the pride of those residents who continue to enjoy living and working here.

About the Association

The neighborhood association meets quarterly on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6 pm (January, April, July & October). Next meeting: April 18.

Preservation Project

With exciting developments coming to our neighborhood, we can certainly expect change. Whether it is new buildings, a Streetcar, new residences, our sleepy part of town is fast becoming a hot spot. And with that change, our Neighborhood Association must grow to meet the demand of our new neighbors.
