Mutual of Omaha & Mutual of Omaha Bank

August 24th, 2018 No comments

For over 41 years, Mutual of Omaha Plaza was my daily work destination. Mutual of Omaha Plaza consists of the buildings from 33rd & Dodge Street south to Harney Street, and west to 35th Ave.  Headquartered on this campus are the Mutual of Omaha affiliated companies as well as Mutual of Omaha Bank. It was, and is, a great place to work. Founded in 1909 as the Mutual Benefit Health & Accident Association, Mutual of Omaha has succeeded in the insurance and banking marketplaces by focusing on the needs of its customers. They protect what people care about and are there when they are needed. Helping people reach their financial goals is in the company’s DNA. The company and their employees are known for their integrity, generosity, and community engagement. Over the years, the company has made major investments in Omaha, including real estate developments in Regency (West Omaha), and more recently Midtown Crossing at Turner Park which it still oversees.  A Fortune 500 company with excellent financial ratings, it is a company you can trust for all of your banking and insurance needs. Give one of their agents or personal bankers a call. Happy Motoring!

Joslyn Castle

August 23rd, 2018 No comments

Located at 3902 Davenport Street is one of Omaha’s great historical treasures – the Joslyn Castle. The castle preserves the history of one of Omaha’s greatest families. Built by George and Sarah Joslyn in 1903, the 35-room castle comprises 19,360 square feet of ornate woodworking and architectural majesty. A pioneer in the newspaper industry, George built the Western Newspaper Union into the largest “ready print” supplier in the country at that time. Accumulating great wealth, the Joslyn family used their wealth to work for the benefit of others. Through their generosity, they established many great organizations, including UNO, the Nebraska Humane Society, the Omaha Community Playhouse and Joslyn Art Museum, to name a few. The staff at the castle do a wonderful job of preserving the building, Omaha history, and the Joslyn family legacy. Take a tour when you are able. Tours are held on the First and Third Sundays each month and on Mondays. See their website for times and admission costs. Happy Motoring!
