Everett School to be on the auction block Dec. 9

Oct 19, 2021

The Everett School on Gibbs Avenue will be up for auction on Dec. 9 along with a property the town seized for unpaid taxes.

The school, built in 1918, has served as a high school, kindergarten, alternative school and, most recently, office space.

The building has been empty in recent years, although the 15 Gibbs Ave. property was repaired using grant funds received in 2015.

The school is a distinctive building that has plenty of parking and is located in a well-trafficked area near the Town Green, noted Select Board member Alan Slavin. The property borders — but is not within — a Historic District.

The Assessor’s Department has valued the building at $315,100. 

The Select Board voted to declare the building surplus and dispose of it.
