Is this the old school located on Route 902? I believe that, if that's the one you're speaking of, indeed was an old school. But I remember that there were businesses occupying that building for quite some time (I think one was actually the driver's license photo center). I'm guessing the renovations were fairly recent?

That's a very nice area, across the bridge and not a far drive to places like Split Rock Lodge, Jack Frost Ski Area, and Penn's Peak.

As for pest issues - I can't help there.

Is this right across from the Lutheran church? If so, that is an OLD school. My mom graduated from JT in 1958 and the school was there way back then. Not sure when it was built, but hopefully renovations have fixed any issues. I doubt it's haunted, and I guess pests depends on how neat you and your neighbors are. I don't think roaches would be an issue, but possibly centipedes and spiders would be.

Okay, my grandparents used to live at 129 West Broadway, so it's not too far from there. That's a nice area, near the old movie theater. Is there still a bakery near there?
