Former Milford High School (1909)

April 3rd, 2012 Posted in Milford, Neoclassical, Schools

Known locally as the Yellow Building (and later named the Diane S. Toulson Building), the Beaux-Arts structure at 38 W River Street in Milford was constructed in 1908-1909 as a high school. It was later used for all grades but in the 1980s it was threatened with demolition. Local citizens fought to save it and it was reused as senior housing. Today it continues as part of Elderly Housing Management under the name River Park Apartments.

    The “Yellow Building” was actually named for Diane Toulson BEFORE it was converted to apartments for the elderly and disabled. Your synopsis is otherwise correct.
