The Omaha Quartermaster Depot Historic District, including several brick structures built in Italianate and other styles, was built for the U.S. Army between 1881 and 1894. Located in South Omaha between Hickory and 22nd Streets, Woolworth Avenue and the Union Pacific main line in Omaha, Nebraska, the Depot was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a historic district in 1979. Today the Depot is used as a U.S. Army Reserve facility.
In 1892 the Depot Commissary from Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, moved to Omaha. The U.S. Army's Department of the Platte used the Depot as a storage and distribution source for military outposts for twenty years, including its peak activity during World War I. During that period, the Depot supplied camps and National Guard units throughout the Midwest.
During the Great Depression, the Depot was activated as part of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal program as a supply base for Civilian Conservation Corps camps across the United States. Today the district is occupied as a United States Army Reserve facility.
