The "Jobbers' Canyon" Historic District was a six-and-one quarter block area in the eastern section of downtown Omaha comprised of large scale primarily early twentieth century brick warehouses, brick and cobblestone streets, docks and dock-canopies and rail spurs. The canyon-like area created the massive brick jobbing houses that lined south Ninth Street in a unique urban streetscape in the city. The district was comprised of 22 contributing warehouse buildings and 4 non-contributing buildings. Most of the buildings were demolished in 1989 to make way for Conagra's new downtown headquarters.
