Located in south central Lincoln, and developed with 131 single-family residences, the Woodsshire Residential Historic District is a 40-acre subdivision with an innovative design, highly responsive to its topography. Nebraska's first academically trained landscape architect, Ernst Herminghaus, designed Woodsshire's landscape plan, promoted the development of the area, and resided in it for a decade. In addition to Herminghaus's design, many of the district's Period Revival style homes showcase the work of several of Lincoln's leading architects.
