Inscription. Apartments such as this were a new type of residential building that emerged during the early 20th century as Salt Lake City developed into an urban center. Dozens of multi-story brick apartments were constructed in the neighborhoods near downtown. They were attractive investments for property owners and practical, "modern" housing for those who wished to live in the central city rather than in the suburbs. The Lincoln Arms Apartments were constructed in 1924-25 at a cost of $42,000. Original owners were Myrtle and Phillip Bratt. Mr. Bratt, a local contractor, was also the builder.
