Trenton Apartments - Escondido, CA, USA

Escondido's first apartment building built in 1912 for Peter Schnack, an early Escondido photographer who came from Trenton, NJ.  Prior to World War I it was called the Schnack Apartments, but due to the anti-German sentiment of the time the name was changed.

Each of the apartments face a center court which was originally planted with semi-tropical plants.

Located at 204 E. 2nd St. on the NE corner of Kalmia and 2nd.
