Geography and Geology


Omaha, Nebraska, not unlike numerous other towns and cities throughout the United States, experienced a period of tremendous growth during the early decades of this century. Changes in industrial technology, an increasing work force, and innovative intra-urban transportation networks combined to bring a new look to the city. The bungalow-style house is one of many house styles which, in identifying its stylistic elements, location, and distribution within a city, offers insight into urban growth and elements of popular taste. Studying the single-family home generates information which may help guide geographers to the essence of the urban landscape, both past and present.
