When it comes to upscale living with small-town flavor, Elkhorn provides homeowners with thebig city escape they are seeking. What began as a farming/railroad township in 1865, this revered suburb has grown into one of Douglas County’s most sought-after vicinities.
More than 17,000 residents (primarily young families, couples and retirees) reside in this affluentwest Omaha neighborhood. Elkhorn provides its residents with the advantages of city living (employment, entertainment, shopping) – located only minutes away from Omaha on West Dodge Road. Yet, it maintains a rustic uniqueness with its historic downtown; numerous locally-owned businesses; and country estates & horse farms located near the community.
Employers include Metropolitan Community College, area public & private schools, as well as various Elkhorn businesses. With the proximity of Omaha, as well as other nearby communities, many residents commute to their jobs.
The Elkhorn Public School District (EPS) has maintained its top-notch status – recognized as oneof the premier education districts in the State of Nebraska. The EPS school district has 10elementary schools, four middle schools and two high schools. To accommodate Elkhorn’s growing population and number of students, plans are in the works to soon add an additional elementary and high school.
Although Elkhorn was annexed by the City of Omaha in 2007, this change has done little to affect the community’s overall small-town appeal or public services. Plus, this area’s real estate market continues to flourish with ongoing new home construction, even despite recent economic downturns.
This beautiful peaceful suburb is well-known for its gorgeous golf course – Indian Creek Golf Club, as well as plenty of tree-lined city parks and popular baseball diamonds. Plus, each summer residents gather together to celebrate the fun-filled Elkhorn Days Festival.
