Thomas Kimball was an Omaha architect. But he did leave his mark on Lincoln. He designed the Telephone Building. Through the years, this building has been used for many different things. Right now, one of my favorite bookstores happens to be inside.
This exterior staircase might be one of the most unique features of the building.
Last year in 2019, Thomas Kimball was added to the Nebraska Hall of Fame. Although I did not attend the ceremony, I did receive a copy of the booklet from the Nebraska Capitol bookstore. I hope to tell you more facts about him soon.
P.S. A big thank you to Leslie at Francie & Finch for letting me host my first A History Lover’s Guide to Lincoln book signing event at your bookstore today.
