Redick's Old Picnic
Grounds Are Now to
Be Put on Market
The noted Redick's Grove, as such, will
soon be no more. The last of this tract
Is now platted and Is being put on the
market by A, F. Tukey ft Son. This Is
known as Redick's Second addition. It
contains forty-six lots, between Thirty
first and Thirty-third streets and be
tween Jackson and Leavenworth.
Into rest has always centered around
this old spot on account of the great
maplo grove. In which the big picnics
were hold In the pioneer days of Omaha's
history. The tract now thrown on the
market Is still a part of this famous old
grove and con talus a great many huge
trees. Judge W. A. Redlck says one of
the first picnics he can remember in this
grove was given by Mrs. John McCor
mlck in 1868. Over 200 were present. Two
good springs bubbled up In the grove In
those days, so there was plenty goon
waUr for the picnickers. Where the
present boulevard is. a small creek ran
through the grove at that time. Judge
Redick's father dammed this and made
a fine swimming hole for the boys. The
winding roads through the grove in pio
neer days made It the fashionable drive
of the citjr.
Redick's Grove originally comprised lflo
acres of the farm hotnesteaded by a man
named Weatherwax. ' In 1861. going to
war. he sold 100 acres to John L Redlck.
This 100 acres extended from Farnam to
Leavenworth and from Twenty-seventh
to Thirty-third street, except for a jog
on the east. A large part of the ground
Is now oovered with residences, stores,
churches, the Nicholas Bonn hospital.
Temple Israel, and so on.
John I, Redlck first laid out Redick's
First addition, which was afterwards re
