Kempton New Church Home to convert school to senior apartments

The former Albany Township Elementary School, Kempton, faced an uncertain future when it was sold at public auction in 2015, but a new life for the property is on the horizon.

The original school building was constructed in 1958, and students and teachers from local one-room schoolhouses were moved to the new school.

Substantially modified in the late 1980s and again in 2000, the building was mothballed by the Kutztown Area School District in 2013 due to changing student demographics.
