Omaha, NE

Omaha is in the center of the United States and the heart of the Midwest. Omaha’s pioneer period began in 1854 when the city was founded by speculators from neighboring Council Bluffs, Iowa. The city was founded along the Missouri River, and a crossing called Lone Tree Ferry earned the city its nickname, the “Gateway to the West.” It introduced this new West to the world when in 1898 it played host to the World’s Fair.

LDS Population

LDS Members make up 1.45% of the population of Omaha. In the state of Nebraska there are 23,133 members in 4 stakes, 41 wards, 19 branches, 1 mission, and 1 temple located in Omaha.

LDS History

In August, approximately 2,500 saints set up camp at a place called Cutler’s Park on the west side of the Missouri in what is now Nebraska. This settlement lasted only a few months until the camp moved to the higher ground nearby that became known as Winter Quarters. Approximately 8,000 Latter-day Saints settled there between the fall of 1846 and the spring of 1848, when those who were not yet ready to go west moved back across the river to Kanesville, Iowa, and Winter Quarters reverted to the Omaha tribe.
