The Central Grammar Apartments have long been the home for elderly Gloucester residents seeking affordable housing. The building, which neighbors city hall and the post office, was once home to Gloucester Grammar School. In 2010, the Central Grammar Apartments received a $2.7 million dollar grant from the state Department of Housing and Community Development for renovation.
