3316 Ohio St, Omaha, NE 68111. $65,000
This is my kind of house! Almost like it was put in a time capsule from 1910.
This lovely house was the home of Frank Fobes (1862-1911), a school janitor, and his wife Esther Houston Fobes. They shared the house with Frank’s brother Benjamin, a brakeman for the railroad, his widowed brother-in-law James Houston from Scotland, a cooper, and James’ young son William Houston. Before her death Mrs. Houston enjoyed holding social events at the home, sharing hosting duties with Esther. She did not have long to enjoy the home. Neither did Frank, as he died in 1911 at the age of 48, and his funeral was held at this home.
