Avesta South Paris senior housing, in former school, set to open

The former Fox School in South Paris is about to welcome residents into what is now new senior housing.

Portland nonprofit Avesta has converted the two-story former school into 12 affordable rental apartments for seniors. The residence is scheduled to open at the end of the month.

As part of the redevelopment, Avesta is collecting memories from those associated with the school “to ensure that generations of stories are recorded at this pivotal point in the building’s history,” the organization says on its website. Avesta hopes to create a book for display in the building’s community room.
