Nebraska’s Housing Stories & The NEw Attainable House FROM A NATIONAL NARRATIVE TO A STATE STORY At the beginning of 2020, the Nebraska History Museum hosted the traveling exhibition Evicted, organized by the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. To accompany the national narrative, Nebraska’s Housing Stories was created to highlight statewide, historic housing issues that often become less visible factors contributing to the eviction crisis. Part of Nebraska’s Housing Stories features the exhibition, The NEw Attainable House. This project- based exhibit is a partnership with the University of Nebraska (Lincoln) College of Architecture’s Fabrication and Construction Team (FACT) and explores affordable home design for Nebraska communities in collaboration with area nonprofits. Nebraska’s Housing Stories and The NEw Attainable House are presented at the Nebraska History Museum with support from South of Downtown Community Development Organization and University of Nebraska (Lincoln) College of Architecture.
