Historic Scotland Campus Auction
June 28, 2023
The Scotland Campus at 3583 Scotland Rd was created after the Civil War as a school for orphans whose fathers were lost as a result of the war.
CHAMBERSBURG, PA. June 28, 2023 — The campus auction will take place on site at 12pm Thursday, July 27th. Williams & Williams, a nationwide leader for commercial real estate auctions will conduct the online auction. Bidding will be open at 10am Monday July 25 and close Wednesday July 27
The sprawling, 169-ac campus at 3538 Scotland Rd. was originally built to house and educate children whose military fathers died from war or disease. It eventually because a private prep school and most recently, an athletics-oriented school. The seller of the campus is not the former operator of the school.
The campus contains 75 buildings that include classrooms, a dining hall, gymnasiums, dorms and 40 duplex cottages. “About 75% of the campus is move-in ready condition, but there are buildings that will need repairs,” said Danae Hill, Vice President of Operations at Williams & Williams. “There is also plenty of open space for campus expansion if a new owner requires that.”
Hill said the market for private school campuses is strong, but a new owner could repurpose the property for other uses, including creating a resort or a retirement community. “Existing amenities such as the fully equipped and furnished 20,000 sf commercial kitchen, and an outdoor amphitheater would be appealing for a school or other commercial opportunities,” she said.
Prospective buyers should attend the upcoming inspection July 6 & 7. Call 918.362.6565 or email Danae.Hill@WilliamsAuction.com to schedule an appointment.
