La Vista, in north central Sarpy County between Papillion and Ralston, was created in 1959 by a developer who planned to build 335 homes. Priced at a modest $9,999 each, it soon became known as "House of Nines." At the time, the assessed valuation was just over $1,000,000. The first families began moving into their homes in January 1960. La Vista (meaning "the view") was selected as its name by these "early settlers" because of the beautiful scenic view of the Big Papio Creek basin southeast of the development.
