Considered Omaha’s first suburb, Dundee was developed in the late 1800s. The homes here are equally unique and iconic. Some of Omaha’s most desirable real estate is along Dundee’s Happy Hallow Boulevard.

I called Dundee home for over 10 years. This neighborhood is oozing with charm and character. The downtown area of Dundee makes you feel like you live in a small town.

The homes also have a lot of character. Most of the homes in this area were built between 1900 and 1940. You’ll find a wide variety of architecture from that time period.

If you are interested in buying, be prepared. Home prices in Dundee have been going up pretty significantly in the past years. It’s tough to find a decent home under $300k in the area.

Schools:

The area has several private schools including Brownell-Talbot (Nonsectarian) and St. Margaret Mary’s (Catholic).

Omaha Public Schools covers this area with the following schools: Dundee Elementary School, Harrison Elementary School, Lewis & Clark Middle School, and Omaha Central High School.

Parks and Recreation

Memorial Park and Elmwood Park.

Safety: A majority of Dundee is relatively safe. However, because it is bordered by less amicable neighborhoods, it is important to practice common sense with your personal items and avoid walking alone at night.

Entertainment: The most popular area for shopping, dining and entertainment in Dundee is located between 49th and 52nd Streets on Underwood Avenue – just six blocks north of Dodge Street.
