Did you know the South Union School (now the Arts Center) used to house a branch of the local library? Or that it was built in 1912 by well-known architects Cooper and Bailey who built a number of area schools in the early 1900’s? Or that it’s an example of Classical Revival architecture?
The Southborough Historical Society knew all that, and given its historic value, they’re applying to have the building listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Should the application be successful, the town would be eligible for matching state funds to help preserve the building.
The Board of Selectmen last week approved the town’s application.
