Sockanosset School gym and swimming pool building
A two-story, T-shaped Colonial Revival building, with a cross-gable roof and a cupola. Built by the PWA in 1936-38 to house an auditorium, gymnasium, and swimming pool. Like most of the Sockanosset buildings, this building has been demolished for the Chapel View “Lifestyle Center”, a mixed use development. Sockanosset was the state’s reform school for boys. The architect of this building was Albert Harkness of Providence.
