SWEDISH EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN EMANUEL CHURCH

Swedish Evangelical Lutheran Emanuel Church


Swedish Evangelical Lutheran Emanuel Church was the outgrowth of mission work in 1886 by the Reverend J.A. Hultman. Reverend Hultman came to Omaha on a concert tour, liked what he saw, and became a resident. The structure in the photograph was located on the northeast corner of 19th & Cass streets. The lot was purchased for $11,000 and the church built for $12,000.
