Face-lift

The Coddington School, on the National Register of Historic Places, is undergoing a million dollar plus renovation for future use as school administration offices and other city services.  This colonial revival building was designed and built by Charles Brigham in 1909.  It's great to see these solid structures with so much character fixed and repurposed for many more years of service.  The old Quincy High School in the background is being readied for demolition.

This building reminds me of the Mass. Fields Elementary School on Beach Street that I attended in the early-mid 1960s. Same vintage?

Pam- Yes! The Mass Fields School is also colonial revival style with some touches of Queen Anne. It was built around the same time - 1896. Architects by the name of A.H. Wright & Stephen Moxon designed MFS.
