The former county jail on Cherry Street will soon be housing people again

ST. JOHNSBURY — The former county jail on Cherry Street will soon be housing people again with the expected April 1 completion of a $1.86 million RuralEdge renovation project. It won’t be inmates occupying the space but rather people who have been homeless waiting for a permanent place at a time when housing is hard to come by. The “Cherry Street Hotel” features nine apartment units in the former jailhouse and the adjacent jailer’s house. Guided by the plans of Scott and Partners Architecture, of Essex Junction, and accomplished by a Kingdom Construction crew, the interior of the buildings has gone through a complete renovation.
