Education Center St. Mary of the Annunciation
Historic Renovation
1985- 1987 Melrose, Massachusetts

The renovation of the St. Mary of the Annunciation convent created a new educational center. This 30,000 square foot building was constructed at the turn of the century, and maintains much of its original charm. The renovations included a new kindergarten, classrooms, meeting rooms, administration areas and a chapel.  The addition of a new elevator provides access to all levels. 
 

These renovations were the first phase of a master plan that would eventually provide a new function hall located behind the education center.
