Dundee is an historical quarter situated at 50th and Underwood Streets and its surrounding areas. Located in the US city of Omaha (Nebraska), this neighborhood features several historic residences, a number of restaurants (including the famous Dundee Dell, known all over the country), stores (including the locally known Dundee Hardware Plus), two churches (Dundee Presbyterian Church and St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church), two academic institutions (the Brownell-Talbot School and the Dundee Public Elementary School), and two of the city’s best parks (Memorial and Elmwood).
The Association of the Memorial Park is dedicated to raise awareness and promote Dundee’s preservation. The annexing of Dundee to Omaha took place in June 1915. Built more than 100 years ago, Dundee was the first suburb of the city, being built one housing unit at a time. This is the reason behind the original architecture of today Dundee’s homes. More than 2,000 maple trees were bought and planted along the neighbourhood’s roads by Dundee’s original developers.
Dundee annexed a number of different areas next to its original housing state, after the construction of units south of Dodge Street and north of Cuming Street. Kansas City contractors Shannon Brothers were employed by a real state entrepreneur called John Nelson Hayes Patrick to build six housing units in Omaha between 48th and 52nd Streets, Capitol to California. The development would later receive the name Dundee Place after another housing state that the Shannon Brothers had just completed in their hometown. Real estate entrepreneurs C.C. and J.E. George developed Happy Hollow Boulevard and Dodge’s part south and west of 50th to Elmwood Park. These two men also filled in the creek running along 50th Street. In addition, they also built Dundee lights and sidewalks. The region’s houses depicted a number of architectural styles, including Colonial, Georgian and Tudor Revival.
