Update: In late 2019 (third photo down), the school sits empty above much as it did in September of 2017, windows open and the interior exposed to the elements. There is no sign of redevelopment in the future. See Monroe School, another design from around the same time period, here.
Sitting empty, the Eliot School never saw the rehabbing that its neighbor, Irving School received several years ago. As such, it sits empty.
But it is a magnificent building, featuring strong, stout architecture with Italianate but also Romanesque influences. As such, it is that typical, non-selfconscious architecture that pervades Nineteenth Century America.
