Inside Wormley Row

Take a tour of a new development of high-end condos and townhouses in Georgetown.

An 1885 Georgetown schoolhouse will soon open its doors again—but not to schoolchildren. Wormley Row, formerly the Wormley School, will be a new collection of luxury condominiums and townhouses on Prospect Street. The building has been empty since the 1950s, but Encore Development is restoring the original brick building and transforming it into luxury living spaces.
