I am not familiar with the Columbus School that you mention, but there was a satellite branch of Thorp School located at the south east corner of Addison St. and Narragansett Avenue. This was a frame building. I remember that right after the OLA fire, the building was torn down. Now, several apartment buildings occupy the land. I believe that the buildings are actually built on a ground lease, similar to other Board of Education property leased out for non educational use.
