    An article about the school: link.

    And an old photo (possibly around when it was built) of the school: link.

    I know this area like the back of my hand. With the apartment shortage going on I’m really surprised it isn’t being snatched up and converted. I mean in the area they just cleaned up the toxic Roosevelt Mills site and turned them into apartments(which by the way would be a good read for any OHD fan). This is a great area to live. I’m betting the town/state will eventually snatch it up and turn it into low cost apartments. Relatively speaking anyway. 160K for this building, in this area, is nothing. I believe this is about 10 miles to UCONN which will speed up it becoming apartments. If you’re looking for a sleepy, quiet New England village Stafford Springs is pretty hard to beat.

    What a great price for a terrific building. Hopefully it’s structurally sound and will need only cosmetic upgrades. My fantasy is to live in an old church but barring that a schoolhouse would be my second choice.
    My other dream would be to buy a space like this and convert it into a veterinary hospital, rescue, and animal sanctuary.

    most curious project 4 one with the money/mindset to convert it to a nice home/smallish business

    but from what I gathered from the article, the locals are going to be hard to please, regardless of who gets it and what they plan to do with it

    good luck with finding your dreams, Dragonflysprit14

    What a cool building. I mean, who wouldn’t want to live in a school like this?

    You can almost hear the children’s footfalls echoing in the stairwell.

    Apartment conversion would be good usage.
