Housatonic School reuse panel on fact-finding tour

(Emily Thurlow) Former Housatonic Elementary School.

GREAT BARRINGTON —Efforts to redevelop the former Housatonic Elementary School seemed renewed after members of a newly formed committee toured the building.
Tasked by the town’s selectboard to conduct a formal review of potential reuse scenarios for the building, the Economic Development Committee visited the space and discussed their observations at their meeting on Tuesday night.
One by one, members went around the table sharing feedback — many of which noted they were surprised by the building’s condition.
The 21,662-square-foot building includes long and open hallways with 12 classrooms that are 700 square feet each. The ground level, which is 7,130 square feet, includes a former cafeteria and art room.
Having been familiar with the building when it was actively functioning as a school, committee member Anthony “Tony” Blair noted that despite some cosmetic imperfections and general wear and tear, including a hole in the roof, the building was still very beautiful.
