When you walk across a state line with camera in hand, and the line is clearly marked in paint, aren’t you required to stop and take a photo with a foot in each state? Okay, maybe not required, but certainly hard to resist. Thus, the photo below, in which we are half in Iowa and half in Nebraska on the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge, referred to more commonly as the Footbridge.
Omaha’s Union Station, the first art-deco style train terminal in the country, was completed in 1931. After Amtrak took over all passenger rail service in 1971, the train station closed. It was almost demolished, but the railroad donated the station to the City of Omaha instead. Today the building is home to the Durham Museum. The museum’s permanent exhibits highlight Omaha area history, as well as temporary, traveling exhibits from sources like the Smithsonian.
