Continuing a tradition begun more than 75 years ago, Union Pacific employees harvested Omaha's "official" Christmas tree Nov. 17, and transported it to The Durham Museum, a former Union Station located downtown.
With police escort, the 50-foot blue spruce traveled eight miles down a main Omaha thoroughfare to the open doors of The Durham. More precisely, the open doorway of the Durham. The museum doors were removed in anticipation of the tree's arrival. In years past, the snug fit of exceedingly wide trees has been enough to bring the doorways down.
