PRINT EXCLUSIVE: County eyes purchase of Christian school campus

The Henderson County Board of Commissioners is looking at buying the 9½-acre Hendersonville Christian School property for use as playing fields, indoor recreation and potentially county offices.

The property, which is assessed at $3 million and for sale for $1.2 million, includes a two-story classroom building and a gym with a new oak floor, locker rooms, kitchen and lunchroom. The Hendersonville Christian School board put the property up for sale after the school closed and went out of business last spring.
