The renovation of Wyuka Stables, located just north of Wyuka Funeral Home at 3600 O St., will be showcased during a 3:30 p.m. ribbon-cutting Tuesday (April 21). Tours will be available and light refreshments will be served. The public is invited.
Wyuka Stables, a part of Wyuka Funeral Home & Cemetery, recently went through a complete restoration with some modern updates added. The project was made possible through funds provided by the Nebraska Department of Roads Enhancement Program and the Federal Highway Administration along with private donations raised by Wyuka Foundation.
The project was recognized with the President’s Award by the Preservation Association of Lincoln (PAL) during its annual meeting in March. Wyuka Stables was originally built in 1909 and used for housing horses and casket wagons. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places along with the Cemetery.
The newly-renovated place with modern amenities is considered an excellent venue for occasions such as retreats, reunions, weddings, or just a meeting place. There are two rooms for meetings that can accommodate 60 people each, one with a small kitchen and modern restrooms. In addition, there is a large open courtyard for extra space; part of it is fully covered.
