517 King Street has served many purposes in its long life. The historic building opened in 1916 as St. Joseph Academy, a Catholic school, and later became St. Paul's Elementary School. In 1972 the Navy purchased the building, which functioned as a United Service Organization facility until 1976. A lease agreement then allowed the YMCA to operate there until 1992. Today, the beautiful building, site and history have all been brought back to life in the form of 20 stylish and completely renovated housing units, each offering a character and charm of its own. Hardwood floors, 9-20 foot ceilings and exposed brick adorn the structure, while large windows overlook cityscape with harbor views in the distance. In-unit washers and dryers, stainless steel appliances, and on-site fitness center and parking, all add convenience and comfort for those who call 517 King home. The downtown location is within walking distance of a historic movie house, concert venues, restaurants, shops, public transportation and other benefits of urban living.
Disclaimer: Historically, GreatSchools ratings have been based solely on a comparison of standardized test results for all schools in a given state. As of September 2017, the GreatSchools ratings also incorporate additional information, when available, such as college readiness, academic progress, advanced courses, equity, discipline and attendance data. GreatSchools ratings are designed to be a starting point to help parents compare schools, and they should not be the only factor used in selecting the right school for your family. Learn more.
