Built in 1917, Longfellow School has been serving Madison, Wisconsin, for almost a century. First an elementary school, then a Madison alternative high school and Montessori elementary, Longfellow was virtually unused for almost two decades before The Alexander Company submitted a plan that re-purposed the old school house as updated, modern apartments.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Longfellow was built by Law, Law, and Potter, one of Madison’s premier architectural firms of the time. The exquisite brick exterior, high ceilings, expansive windows, and classrooms have been converted into unique living quarters.

Historic features were painstakingly restored, including the original hardwood floors, chalkboards, woodwork, bookcases, trophy cases, lockers, and even several basketball hoops.
