Built in combined Georgian Revival, Colonial Revival and Prairie School styles, the complex was designated a City of Omaha Landmark in 1978; it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a historic district in 1980. The historic district includes almost 55 acres (22 ha) with 19 buildings.[3]

About

Located in the formerly affluent and prosperous mixed-use neighborhood west of downtown Omaha, the Drake Court Apartments and the Dartmore Apartments were built between 1916-1921 by William B. Drake, a prolific builder who held more than four million dollars worth of apartments throughout Omaha in 1925. These particular buildings were built in both Georgian Revival and Prairie School styles.[2] With beautiful landscaped grounds, marble floors in a number of units and a surrounding park-like atmosphere scattered throughout a mixed-use neighborhood, Drake Court was once a highly-desired property.[4]

Other buildings in the historic district include the Monroe Apartment Building, built in 1920. A four-story structure, it was rehabilitated in 1987. The Madison Apartments, built in 1927, were rehabilitated in 1985.[5]
