From Watts St., 1920s. (Courtesy Durham County Library / North Carolina Collection) From N. Buchanan Blvd., 1920s (Courtesy Durham County Library / North Carolina Collection) One of the earlier masonry apartment buildings in Trinity Park, the Powe Apartments were built between 1920 and 1923 by contractor TH Lawrence. The apartments consist of two buildings with differing facades - one that faces N. Buchanan Blvd. (which appears to have been called "The Edward Powe Apartments",) the other which faces Watts St (which appears to have been called "The Powe Apartments.") The apartment most certainly must have been named after E(dward) K Powe, but I don't have confirmation that he had them built. From Watts St., ~1980 (Courtesy Durham County Library / North Carolina Collection) From Watts St., ~1980 (Courtesy Durham County Library / North Carolina Collection) They are currently owned by Trinity Park apartment magnate Guy Solie.
