Huse School Apartments involved the renovation and rehabilitation of the former John E.L. Huse Memorial School, built in 1942 and 1949. We re-purposed this elementary school to create 31 apartments and added a new construction wing with 28 apartments, for a total of 59 units.

The existing building was restored to its original 1942 appearance, designed by notable Maine architect and Bath native, Alonzo Harriman. Included are new windows consistent with the originals, restored masonry, and new signage which reproduced the original distinctive design.

 

The apartments in the existing building feature original wood floors, high ceilings, and large windows with abundant natural light. Building amenities include wi-fi, fitness center, community room, and secure bike storage.

The Huse School Apartments are located steps from the modern YMCA, the 5-mile Whiskeag Trail, and a short walk to downtown Bath with its variety of shops, restaurants, library and more.
