1944, 75 Years Ago.
"Announcement was made today that the new apartments on the east side of Seventh and Lincoln Highway, formerly known as the Ferguson flats, have been completed and now are ready for occupancy.
"The three apartments that were on the second floor of the building have been converted into six convenient living quarters, and it is reported that all of them have been leased. The conversion was made at the insistence of one of the war industries of the city and the work was completed in about two months' time."
