Middle Georgia State College has purchased the former Scottish Inn property on Eisenhower Parkway for future use.
In a Wednesday news release, Nancy Stroud, the college's vice president for fiscal affairs, said the college purchased the property for $950,000. She said it's being cleared and an announcement will be made later on how the property will be.
The college's Real Estate Foundation purchased the six-acre tract from Frank Walthall. It's located at the southeast corner of the Macon campus, Stroud said.
"The acquisition, structured to ensure the college made the most efficient use of taxpayer dollars, is an investment in the future of Middle Georgia State and the region, As we move toward university status and work on a campus master plan, purchasing this property simply made sense," Stroud said.
