The Atchison YMCA has continuously served the community needs of the citizens of Atchinson. The building functioned as the city’s only YMCA facility until it closed in 2017. A new YMCA facility was constructed adjacent to the historic building, which opened in 2018. The Atchison YMCA organization continued to adapt its program and modify the building to meet the changing needs of the community. 1913, LCC purchased the vacated Old Atchison YMCA in rehabilitation of the Old Atchison YMCA building, preserving an important resource while providing a new high quality housing option in downtown Atchison.
The 1913 Apartments project happened with a $3.1 Million dollar investment. The building owned by 1913, LLC was built in 1913 and is listed as a National and State Historic site.
