Founded in 1887 by entrepreneur Erastus Benson, Benson, Nebraska quickly became a thriving eastern Nebraska town. As the City of Omaha spread westward, it annexed Benson in 1917.

Centrally-located in what is now considered the “heart” of Omaha, the community is proud of its historic buildings, magnificent parks, and cultural diversity. Benson is a very large neighborhood, bordered by 72nd to the West, Fontenelle Boulevard to the East, Ames to North and Western Avenue to the South.
