OMAHA, NEBRASKA, UNITED STATES, December 7, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Matthew Bogard is excited to represent the Wyman Heights Neighborhood Association as a member of the Association leadership along with four other dedicated members of the community.
Wyman Heights is a neighborhood with a proud history that dates to 1902 when local real estate investor Henry Wyman began acquiring property on a large hill north of Florence. He planned to develop an elite neighborhood which in 1925 he re-platted as Wyman Heights.
Lots began to sell in the late 1920’s with sales stymied by the Great Depression. Interest in the neighborhood increased in the years leading up to and after WWII as doctors, lawyers, business owners and socialites discovered the natural beauty of the area. Because of this rich history, Wyman Heights enjoys an eclectic mix of housing styles built over a nearly 40-year span. Many prominent newsmakers in Omaha’s history called Wyman Heights home, including Peter Kiewit (founder of Kiewit construction), Gene Leahy (longtime Omaha Mayor and catalyst of downtown redevelopment), Cecil Wittson, M.D. (prominent early psychiatrics and namesake of Wittson Hall at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, the Reeds Family (founder of Reed’s Ice Cream), David Hayden (Hayden House Restaurants), and Dick Collins, M.D. (The Cooking Cardiologist).
The Wyman Heights Neighborhood Association was formed in the 1960’s to support the growth, development, and preservation of this unique neighborhood. It is in that capacity we are contacting you now.
“My family owned a pharmacy in the area when I was growing up and I came to learn about Wyman Heights while delivering prescriptions, says Matthew Bogard, M.D. “I fell in love with the picturesque views of the Missouri River and the Loess Hills. Neighbors are all so friendly and supportive of each other and our neighborhood in general. I love the landscaping we maintain at the entrance and bus stop as well as the holiday decorations we place every winter.”
