At the corner of Messenger and Upper Newton — the “Messenger Street School” originally built in 1850 is an architectural gem and one of several romanesque style buildings in the hill section of St. Albans. Having continually served the Franklin County Senior Center since 1970 this building consists of four large open rooms with 12’ ceilings, a commercial kitchen with hood system, 4 bathrooms and multiple offices. Original hardwood floors in most of the rooms as well as mostly untouched original woodwork throughout. In 2005 the slate roof was replaced maintaining the exquisite vintage curb appeal that this building offers. An ample parking area in the rear accommodates 31+ vehicles with a fire lane and handicap spots. Located in the City’s R95 district the building has many possible conditional uses to include: Bed & Breakfast, Residential Care Home, Daycare, Community Center, Congregate Housing, Two-Family Dwelling, PUD, Lodging House, or School. This property is a part of the Vermont Historic Registry.
