The old mansion near Thirty-seventh and Farnam Streets, being torn down for the Harney Street cut-through, was built by the late T.J. Mahoney, a prominent Omaha Attorney, long-time Omaha residents recalled Monday.
Mr. Mahoney and J.A.C. Kennedy became law partners in 1901. Oldtimers remembered that Mr. Mahoney was a well known speaker and active in civic work.
The house was built in 1910, according to Courthouse records. In 1918, Banker L.M. Lord bought it. In succeeding years it was known as "Banker Lord's old place."
