Low income housing is on the National Register of Historic Places

POTLATCH, ID - A 107 year-old school house in Potlatch just got a facelift.

The newly remodeled White Pine Manor had its grand re-opening this afternoon with plenty of elected leaders in attendance.

It's an affordable housing complex for low income Idahoans which is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The non-profit Syringa Housing Corporation was able to revamp the building while keeping the schoolhouse design and details thanks to investors, tax credits and rural development loans.

"It presents an opportunity for the future economic development, presents a place for people to live and feel at home and also a chance for the town to hold on to some of its history and importance," said Syringa President Taylor Hunt.

If you are interested in seeing if you qualify to live there, there are three apartments currently available.
