The former Penn Avenue School building has been demolished to make way for Cumberland Family Homes II. During the process, work crews made an interesting discovery: an 87 year old time capsule. Interfaith Housing, which is based in Frederick, was awarded a low-income tax credit to construct the 25 lease-to-purchase townhomes and a community clubhouse in partnership with the city, the state of Maryland, Partnership for Income Restricted Housing Leadership Developers and Boston Financial Investment Management. Allegany County Commissioner Bill Valentine was among the local officials briefed on the project last week.
