An intimate tour of the sites and sounds of the city's historic red light district!
In a city forever changing, there are few landmarks left from a very different sort of Omaha. When the West was still wild a downtown district dedicated to vice flourished where saloons like the Crystal and the Gold Dust ran all night and fun, for some, could be found under the electric lights of M.F. Martin's Arcade. It was a city of kickbacks and corruption with Canada Bill dealing three-card monte and the air sweet and rank with opium smoke. There was all sorts of variety at the St. Elmo and the Bell Hotel needed no desk clerks. From the headquarters of Boss Tom Dennison to the refined delights provided by Anna Wilson, join local author and historian Ryan Roenfeld in an intimate walking tour of Old Omaha.
