Joslyn Castle

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!
