The Old Market Historic Walking Tour

Increasing business led the Skinner Manufacturing Company to build this six-story brick building in 1914. Designed by architect Harry Lawrie, it was doubled in size with the addition of 66 feet to the east a year later. The new building was Skinner's third plant. Brothers Paul F. and Lloyd M. Skinner, who used national advertising as early as 1912, founded it in 1911. Skinner was a leading manufacturer of macaroni and cereal products. Omaha was close to the Durum wheat supply, the only wheat that can be used for a top quality product. Skinner conserved wheat during World War I by originating Kornroni, an economical macaroni product made from corn and wheat. In 1925, it developed Raisin Bran to supplement revenues, and in 1927, it introduced Cheesroni, one of the first macaroni and cheese products. Skinner moved to a new Omaha plant in 1961, and Commercial Optical Company occupied the building soon after. In 1995, Emil Vohoska completed 74 new living spaces here, transforming the building into the Macaroni Apartments.
