Some of y'all may have already heard about this, but a small women's college in an adjoining county announced last week that they were permanently closing the school effective in August. This is a 3,000+ acre space with expansive grounds. Financially, I'm not sure how it has survived this long, but it has always been meticulously maintained and has been a huge diamond in an otherwise mostly rural area.
Here's the issue: there are some pretty serious restrictions in place. The property was legally set aside for the purpose of an "all-white women's college" and restricts the sell of the land. The "all-white" portion was legally amended in the 60s, but it doesn't look like the women's-only portion will be as easy to amend.
They just recently completely a multi-million dollar library project, and have all the services and amenities that a very expensive college would provide and then some, including horse stables and expansive riding trails.
So, just for fun, and understanding some of the restrictions, what creative uses can you think of for this property?
Here's one of many articles that are available as background, but this focuses less on the students and more on some of the other impacts: http://www.theatlantic.com/education...#disqus_thread.
