There’s Something Incredibly Mysterious Hiding In Nebraska… And You’ll Want To Visit

There are wonders and mysteries all around us – you just have to keep your eyes and ears open. Such is the case with a tiny building next to Victory Apartments in Omaha. It’s covered in flowering vines, tucked back away from the main walkways, and nearly invisible if you’re just passing by. But if you go up to it and take a look, you see that there’s something very special hiding underneath those tangled plants.

The grotto is at the site of the old St. Joseph’s hospital (and next to Grace University) on Dorcas Street between 8th and 9th streets. If you decide to visit, please remember that the grotto is private property. Although you can’t go inside, the exterior is absolutely beautiful and fun to photograph.
