North School

Here's a look at three old window casings at the former North School on upper Congress Street. Now it's the North School Congregate Housing facility. The school has been broken up into senior apartments that serve the needs of the elderly in the city. Built in 1867, the building has some of the most interesting architecture on the Hill and simply grand views of the harbor.
*Busy day today, off to hit some garage sales, take in some 'sidewalk art' and then wind our way to Meadowbrook in NH to find the Moody Blues. Hopefully, the thunderstorms will be few and far between.


  1. I do find older building have the most interesting architecture. We don't seem to do that nowadays. Throw up a box so it can torn down later with no regrets. I love the window dressing. MB

    The brick actually gives the window the appearance that it has shades made out of brick.

  3. Great shot! How was the sidewalk art show? And the Moody Blues?

  4. Do you know what year the school closed?
