Old Williston school to become senior housing

The school building was built and 1931 and has been shuttered for several years. Plans call for 22 one-bedroom apartments and 22 two-bedroom apartments at the newly named Lutheran Social Services Legacy Living facility.

Officials say the project is slated to be completed by September 2013.
