Elkhorn still boasts a small town atmosphere while continuing to add numerous new subdivisions and businesses to its perimeter. Its downtown reflects the charm of its earlier days before being annexed by Omaha in 2005, with several buildings from the late 19th and early 20th century still in use. Entertainment, religion and education remain strong today with many churches, recreational facilities and schools serving the area. Today the Elkhorn Public School District educates over 5,000 students in six elementary, two middle, and two high schools. There are also several large parochial schools, as well. The Elkhorn area continues to be an attractive residential option for people of all ages and requirements. Apartments, town homes, and single family dwellings are available in many price ranges. And the Dodge Expressway provides convenient passage for commuters. Other amenities—medical facilities, an abundance of services and retail outlets, Village Pointe Shopping Center, and grocery stores are conveniently located close by, making Elkhorn a convenient and special place to live.
