(Peoria, IL) -- A vacant school building in Peoria now has a new owner. The sale of the building to Montessori Children's House of Peoria was approved Tuesday night by the Peoria City Council. The deal is pending closing. Montesorri Children's House of Peoria is currently located on North Street and educates about 75 students at its facility. The old Washington School has been shuttered since 2010. Before it closed, the building was used as the Adult Education Center for Peoria District 150. Earlier this year, the city purchased the building from District 150.
