Happy Hollow Country Club
Updating an Omaha Classic
APMA was hired to renovate 100-year-old Happy Hollow Country Club. The design included the complete demolition and remodel of the foyer, fireplace lounge, bar, and tiered dining. The Ballroom received a full restoration, including all new finishes, lighting and drapery. The adjacent bar, lounge and dining rooms are designed as transitional complements to the historic. Furniture, gold accents and decorative lighting bring details back into view and unite all spaces.
Scope of Work
Renovation + Restoration
Date of Completion
The existence of Happy Hollow was spear-headed by eleven prominent Omaha businessmen led by Mr. Erastus A. Benson (the founder of the small community of Benson in North Omaha). On April 2, 1907 these men held the first stockholder meeting and adopted the Articles of Incorporation.
