Rome BOE approves sales contract with new buyer for Fort Stanwix School

Bowers Development is purchasing the Fort Stanwix School in Rome, NY to be renovated into market-rate apartment homes. The Fort Stanwix School was built over 100 years ago, opening its doors to students in 1920. The building is well known for its distinguishable architecture and is eligible for designation as both a state and national historic site. We are excited to be working on this project and to have the opportunity to restore yet another historic building to its original glory. The Rome Sentinel wrote a recent article about our purchase and restoration of the Fort Stanwix School – Read about it here on romesentinel.com
