The property at 208 W Campus Ave. in Chestertown was recently purchased and donated to Washington College.
According to property records the land measures 6,000 square feet, and the building is a single family home with two bedrooms and one bathroom built in 1947. In 2014, the property was assesed for $193,700.
So far, it is undecided what the College will use the property for. “Several uses have been discussed but none determined at this moment…. It might be used as a guest facility for overnight visitors, or it could simply be rented,” said Reid Raudenbush, director of physical plant.
Raudenbush said the donors of the house seek to remain anonymous. The property was previously owned by Robert and Kathleen Garson, according to public records.
“Funds were also donated for paint and carpet and so on,” said Raudenbush. The small home will likely be fixed up this spring to await an official use by the College.
