The old Mandan Junior High is taking on a new look.

This building was originally constructed in 1917. Once a school, it will now be renovated into 39 affordable housing units.

The apartments are already starting to look like homes. Commonwealth Construction is even keeping an old stage in one of the units.

Job Site Superintendent Mike Stone says, “Someone had to make the decision, either to tear it down or renovate it. Well it has a lot of historical value here, so North Dakota’s starting to believe in: ‘Let’s save some of our old buildings,’ and that’s what happened. The Historical Society stepped in and a few other people and we’re getting it done. It’s staying for good.”

The project has been in the works since December of 2017 and is expected to be complete by December 1st.
