Arnold Heights Real Estate

Located in far northwest Lincoln, this neighborhood, commonly known as Air Park, began as base housing for the adjacent Lincoln Air Force Base during the Cold War. The area originally consisted of 1,000 housing units and was annexed by Lincoln in 1966, after the base closed. All 1,000 units were originally managed by the Lincoln Housing Authority, but about half of the homes in the neighborhood have been sold to private owners. The area was also formerly known as both “Capehart Housing” when completed in 1960 (north housing) and the “Military Construction Area” when built during 1956 (south housing). Additional housing subdivisions were built in the area in the 1980s and 1990s. More recent additions include a mix of duplexes and single-family homes of various sizes, an IGA grocery store, and a strip mall.
