In 1977, Brook School closed and ownership was transferred to the Board of Selectmen, under the aegis of the Elderly Housing Committee. In 1980, renovations to the 3 Brook School buildings were completed to create rental apartments for seniors who are at least 62 or non-elderly disabled.
In 2004, Building D was added to the complex, built with funds from the Weston Community Preservation Act. Prospective tenants with a Weston affiliation receive preference for these apartments.
This is what some tenants have to say about living at Brook School Apartments -
