|Facility:||The General Crook House Museum|
|Description:||Built in 1878, Quarters 1 of Fort Omaha served as the residence of Gen. George Crook. Gen. Crook was a staunch supporter of Native American's rights and his support of Standing Bear led to the decision that an Indian was a "person" and therefore entitled to the rights and protections of the Constitution. The two story Italianate house is furnished with period pieces. The grounds are landscaped in the Victorian style.|
