Nearly 10 years after closing its doors to students, Miller Junior High School will soon cater to another crowd, functioning as affordable housing for senior citizens.

The massive project has been taken on by the Sadd Brothers, Steve and Mark, in partnership with the Fairmont/Morgantown Housing Authority. The development aims to turn the school and its classrooms into 48 individual apartments, 26 two-bedroom and 22 one-bedroom, for the elderly.

“We’re utilizing low income tax credits and state and federal historic tax credits,” Steve Sadd, who, along with his brother Mark, oversees the project. “We’ve been working on this project for three years.”
