About[edit]

An early example of the Jacobethan style of architecture, the house is the only known work of Albert Kahn in the state. It was built in 1904[3] for Arthur and Zerlina Brandeis of the notable Omaha mercantile family. The house was purchased in 1909 by Jessie H. Millard as a residence for herself and her father, Senator Joseph H. Millard, who was a pioneer Omahan that served as president of the Omaha National Bank, mayor of Omaha in 1871, and as a U.S. senator from 1901 to 1907.[4] The family occupied the residence until 1922.[3]
