The Skarsbo Apartments consist of two nearly identical buildings commonly referred to as the Ambassador Apartments (204 N. 6th Street) and the President Apartments (21 0 N. 6th Street). Together with the small caretaker's cottage located between them, they are being nominated to the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion A for their association with the broad patterns of American building traditions and the development of the City of Grand Forks' residential housing stock. They are excellent examples of the apartment buildings constructed in Grand Forks during the late 1920s, and the only example of two matching buildings constructed as a complex. The period of significance is from 1928 to 1962. The apartment complex is considered significant on a local level.
