1. Historic Haymarket District Marker
Inscription.  The "Haymarket" name can be traced to Lincoln’s first decade. In the capital city’s original plat of 1867, a "market square" was identified, bounded by O and P, 9th and 10th streets. It served as an open-air market for produce and livestock, as well as a camping ground for immigrants and a general gathering place.

Today the Haymarket name still exists in this Historic Warehouse District. The Lincoln City Council in 1982 designated it as the Haymarket Landmark District, giving it recognition and protection as a major element of Lincoln's heritage. The National Park Service subsequently certified haymarket as the equivalent of a district listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Haymarket was the first urban warehouse district affiliated with the "Main Street" revitalization program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
