Belinda Watt captured this stunning photo of what remains of the King Open School as the city prepares to replace it at 850 Cambridge St. in the Wellington-Harrington neighborhood with a $131.5 million complex including the Cambridge Street Upper School, space for preschool and community school programs and a redesign of the Valente Branch Library and Gold Star Pool. At the moment it has a nice, spacious layout.

Look closely and you’ll see an “HS” in the arch – for “Harrington School.” The Charles G. Harrington Elementary School building began hosting the King Open in 2002 after a contentious school district consolidation.
