Packer's National Bank Building is located at 4939 South 24th Street in the South Omaha Main Street Historic District in south Omaha, Nebraska. Built in 1907, in 1984 it was designated an Omaha Landmark[3] and in 1985 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

About[edit]

Designed by Thomas Kimball in the Second Renaissance Revival Style, the Packer's National Bank Building was the home of Packer’s National Bank. The bank was originally established in 1891, and its growth was closely tied to the Omaha Stockyards. Many of the bank’s early officers were executives in Omaha's meat packing industry.[4] The bank left the building in 1979, and in 1984 the building was renovated for use as offices and apartments.
