Designated Omaha Landmark: 4/12/1983

The Buford House is representative of the Period Revival Style of architecture, a style popular in America during the first 40 years of the 20th century. The house is a rare example of Period Revival style in North Omaha, as the majority of houses of that style were being constructed in the then new suburban neighborhoods of Country Club, Minne Lusa and Twin-Ridge-Morton Meadows. Built in 1929, the Buford House was the residence of Harry Buford, a well-to-do member of the black community who was apparently associated with the political organization of city boss Tom Dennison. The location of the Buford House on the west side of 30th Street indicated the status of the Buford family in Omaha during a time of racial segregation.
