Bennington Hospital Makes Offer For Closed College Property

Nov 16, 2020

The Southwestern Vermont Medical Center is offering to buy much of the property of the bankrupt Southern Vermont College in Bennington for $3.2 million.

The hospital says in a news release that it is committed to developing a long-range plan for the property. They want to keep 371-acre campus locally owned, with a goal of making the athletic fields and its hiking trails accessible for the community.

Bankruptcy Trustee Raymond Obuchowski says he expects to file a motion with the bankruptcy judge to accept the college's officer, but other potential buyers have until Dec. 7 to make “higher or better” offers.

The college closed in 2019.
