Good afternoon! If you could help to flesh out your question a bit, we may be able to find more for you - what were you wondering about the apartments, or hoping to find? 

Looks like Joe Lee owned an apartment complex at Eighteenth Street and California in the mid-1940s. Showed up in the Omaha World-Herald in July of '44 for opening a playground for his tenants' children. There's a link to the article here, but if that doesn't work you can now access the historic Omaha World-Herald from our Resource Center at or come downtown and browse through the paper's back issues on microfilm. It's a great way to revisit old memories and our city's past.
