Like many towns in the Midwest, Millard’s founding was closely tied to the construction of the Union Pacific Railroad. Between 1840 and 1890, railroads changed the face of Omaha and the United States, encouraging westward growth and settlement. In 1876, William von Dohren moved to Millard and in 1883 he founded the lumber company which would eventually become Millard Lumber Inc.
Millard Lumber was stationed at the heart of a young and bustling community full of entrepreneurs, business owners and professionals. People came to meet and get supplies to build their homes and businesses. Today, the historic site has been transformed into The Lumberyard District; a vibrant 12 acre living community that is again changing the face of Omaha. Nestled among Millard’s neighborhoods and main streets, the Lumberyard District is alive again in attracting businesses and people.
