Homes For Sale & Real Estate
Unique in the metro area, Ralston, Nebraska, sits in the very heart of Omaha, actually within the city limits.

The town takes pride in its independent status and still maintains its own police and fire departments, but all the amenities and attractions offered by Omaha are easily accessible to Ralston residents due to its location. If you have an independent spirit, then Ralston is for you.

Living in Ralston, Nebraska
The story of how Ralston began is an interesting one. It was built around a farming estate, called Deerfield, owned by a local newspaper publisher. The estate featured an artesian well, 17-room mansion, and a man-made lake. The town had its own post office by 1909, and by 1912 Ralston was incorporated. The town’s historic roots provide a solid basis for the community and as of today it still maintains its own independent public services and government. Though a tornado mangled Main Street a year after incorporation, the town rebuilt and made improvements, such as widening the streets and adding a public library that still serves as the center of activity for the community.
Today, Ralston homes for sale serve as an excellent option for families, due to offering small-town living within reach of the big city's amenities. The town houses six elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. It also offers plenty of green space in part to its mixed-use zoning, perfect for kids looking to play. Remaining its own quiet oasis inside the urban sprawl that is Omaha, Ralston has built a nice community for its residents.Ralston Arena was built in October 2012 to house the Omaha Lancers USHL junior hockey team. The arena is also home to the Omaha Beef, Omaha Heart, Omaha Rollergirls, and, from time to time, a concert or two. Who says you have to compromise convenience to live in a small town?
