The Dahlman neighborhood is located south of downtown Omaha, Nebraska. One of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, it was originally platted in 1856. It was later named after "Cowboy" James Dahlman, an eight-term mayor of Omaha.
Originally platted in 1854, the Dahlman neighborhood was full of ethnic enclaves. This fact was reflected in the Catholic Churches in the neighborhood: St. Wenceslaus served the area's Czechs (Bohemians), St Joseph's served Germans, St. Patrick's for the Irish, and St. Philomenia for the Italian community.
Dahlman has several landmarks. They include the Omaha Botanical Gardens at 6th and Cedar Streets, and the Bohemian Cafe at 13th and William Streets. The Prague Hotel and the Sokol Auditorium at 13th and Martha Streets are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Dahlman Park, located at 615 Pine Street, has horseshoe pits, basketball and tennis courts and walking paths.
