Penn Manor School District this week completed the sale of the former Hambright Elementary School to Signature Senior Living LLC for approximately $1.5 million.
The sale marks the end of the school’s 80-year existence, said superintendent Mike Leichliter.
“While many students and teachers have fond memories of the old building, the school district is pleased that the property will be used by a taxpaying entity and that the proceeds can be used to offset other capital expenses of the district,” he said.
The former school was shuttered after the 2013-2014 school year and was replaced by a new Hambright Elementary School on Charlestown Road that opened in August 2014.
Signature Senior Living plans to tear down the building and construct an 80-unit memory care and assisted living facility on the site, located at 2121 Temple Ave.
