Carrie Meyer talked about Omaha’s former train depot, Union Station, housed in the Durham Museum. She gave a tour of the art deco structure and explained how the Trans Continental Railroad provided an economic boom for the new city and established Omaha as an important railroad terminal in the Midwest.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2015 LCV Cities Tour” in Omaha, Nebraska, from May 7-13 to feature the history and literary life of the community.
