NORTHFIELD

Group to find new owner for campus

Continue reading below

The Oklahoma company that tried and failed to give away a former preparatory school campus in Northfield has donated the property to a Christian foundation, which will continue looking for a permanent owner. The Hobby Lobby craft store chain, founded and owned by the Green family, announced the donation Wednesday to the National Christian Foundation, effective Dec. 28. The announcement was made two months after the Greens’ extensive efforts to give away the 217-acre campus suffered a huge setback when the recipient backed out. A Christian Foundation official said the best use of the campus “may include donation, sale, or some combination of those two.” The campus has been vacant since 2005, when the Northfield Mount Hermon prep school moved out to shed costs and consolidate at a nearby campus.
