Plans for ex-prep school campus under fire in Northfield
Area residents fear a ‘bad fit’
The fate of the Northfield campus formerly owned by Northfield Mount Hermon School remains uncertain as its Oklahoma owners continue to receive proposals from Christian organizations. On Sunday afternoon, about 25 Northfield residents gathered to discuss concerns about a possible transfer of the 217-acre campus to Liberty University of Lynchburg, Va. They plan to request a meeting with the property’s owners and launch a website to keep the community informed about developments. Last week, more than 1,000 Mount Hermon alumni launched a petition to protest the prospect of Liberty getting the campus.
