Lincoln Community

Our Lincoln community was built in 1941 and was modernized in 1991. It is located in the center of Frederick on South Bentz St and consists of walk-up style apartments. This family-oriented community has a playground for small children, a community room and is less than a block away from Mullinex Park which has a public pool. Lincoln was the first of HACF’s public housing communities to be constructed.

Each apartment is equipped with gas heat, gas stove and water heating. These walk-up style apartments offer one to three bedrooms, tile floors, washer dryer hook-ups and wood kitchen cabinets. The apartment complex is located approximately four blocks from downtown Frederick.
