Joe, The Highwayman, Jeff. By , the town had become known as Kanesville, named for benefactor Thomas L. Kane , who had helped negotiate in Washington, DC federal permission for the Mormons to use Indian land along the Missouri for their winter encampment of — Built at or next to Caldwell's Camp, Kanesville became the main outfitting point for the Mormon Exodus to Utah , and it is the recognized head end of the Mormon Trail.
Edwin Carter , who would become a noted naturalist in Colorado , worked here from — in a dry goods store. He helped supply Mormon wagon trains. Settlers departing west from Kanesville, into the sparsely settled, unorganized parts of the Territory of Missouri to the Oregon Country and the newly conquered California Territory , through the eventual Nebraska Territory , traveled by wagon trains along the much-storied Oregon , Mormon , or California Trails into the newly expanded United States western lands.
After the first large organized wagon trains left Missouri in , the annual migration waves began in earnest by spring of They built up, thereafter, with the opening of the Mormon Trail until peaking in the later s, when news of railroad's progress had a braking effect.
By the s, virtually all migration wagon trains were passing near the renamed town. The wagon train trails became less important with the advent of the first complete transcontinental railway in , but while trail use diminished after that, their use continued on at lesser rates until late in the nineteenth century.

The community was transformed by the California Gold Rush , and the majority of Mormons left for Utah by In , the town was renamed Council Bluffs.
It continued as a major outfitting point on the Missouri River for the Emigrant Trail and Pike's Peak Gold Rush , and entertained a lively steamboat trade. In an anonymous soldier on his way to fight the Dakota Uprising passed through Council Bluffs and described a hardscrabble town:. At Council Bluffs our arrival was greeted by a few rounds from the old six pounder, while the streets were lined with a curiosity-seeking class of humanity, among which could easily be traced the physiognomy of bipeds of almost every clime—all here to make money.
When you understand that this is the great entrepot for emigration across the Plains, you will readily comprehend that this is a good point at which to "take stranger in," and it is done almost every day. Our stay at Council Bluffs was very short two days and I think no one was sorry to leave it. Council Bluffs rather than Omaha was designated by Abraham Lincoln as the official starting point of the transcontinental railroad which was completed in The official "Mile 0" start is at 21st Street and 9th Avenue which is now marked by a gold spike that was used for the promotion of the movie Union Pacific  Council Bluffs physical connection to the Transcontinental Railroad was delayed until when the Union Pacific Missouri River Bridge opened railroad cars had to be ferried across the Missouri River from Council Bluffs to Omaha in the early days of the Transcontinental.

By the s, Council Bluffs had grown into the country's fifth largest rail center. The railroads helped the city become a center for grain storage, and massive grain elevators continue to mark the city's skyline. During the s, Meyer Lansky operated a greyhound racing track in Council Bluffs.
Restructuring of the railroad industry caused the loss of many jobs after the midth century, as did the restructuring of heavy industry.
Many jobs moved offshore. By the late 20th century the city and region were suffering economic stagnation and a declining population, as they struggled to develop a new economy.
Downtown urban renewal was undertaken to create a new future while emphasizing the strengths of heritage.

The West End is a geographically large area on the flood plain east of the Missouri River and downtown Omaha , Nebraska, west of 10th St. These neighborhoods of long, tree-shaded avenues are divided by the commercial corridor of West Broadway U.
