The George F. Shepard House is located at 1802 Wirt Street in the Near North Side neighborhood on the north end of Omaha, Nebraska. Built in 1903 in the Queen Anne/Beaux-Arts style, it was designated an Omaha Landmark in 1981.
George F. Sheperd was a stonemason and artist in Omaha at the time of the 1889 Trans-Mississippi Exposition in Kountze Place. The Shepard House reflects that influence. With stone cutter's precision, Shepard personalized much of the residence with marble and stone etchings. One of Sheperd's Classical-styled works is owned by the Nebraska Art Collection housed in Kearney, Nebraska.
