Large Citizen Turnout for Community Meeting


The old Berea High School built by the WPA in the 1930s is for sale. The facility is located on a large lot of choice property in the center of the Berea business district. The well-constructed brick building will be expensive to demolish, which will figure into the cost of any buyer with plans for development.

It is understood that a Florida company has an option to buy the facility. Their plan would be to demolish the current building to make way for a retail outlet. Attempts to obtain specific   information on the deal from the School District of Greenville County proved unsuccessful on Monday. If the deal does not work out between the prospective purchaser and the school district, it is estimated that the property could become available for another buyer between September 2015 and January 2016. The Berea community leaders are researching options for buying the building and using it for a community center should it become available for them to arrange a purchase.
