Take a left (or turn West) onto Fort Street, which is the main entrance for MCC. Once on campus, head straight West through campus until you come to a "T" in the road with a stop sign, turn right (or North) - The General Crook House is the 6th house on the left (or West) side of the road. We are the only house with a large American flag hanging on the front porch.

This is a beautifully restored mansion. The furnishings are authentic. Each room is a feast for the eyes. It is on the grounds of a Fort no longer in use. Well worth a visit.

General Crook House Museum is well worth the visit. The house is beautiful and the bookstore has all sorts of Omaha history, not just military related.

My husband is a historian and we loved the character and history of this home. It is easily accessible and sits in what was once Fort Omaha.

A nice, peaceful step back in time. Quiet, able to take your time and really enjoy each room. The old toys are a delight!

The Douglas Co Historical Society has done a superb job of removing the layers of paint and restoring the old wood. You have to access it in Fort Street and 30th so don't believe your GPS. Don't miss this for late 1800's furniture and architecture.
