Less than a year after being sold at auction, an historic Lexington school is back on the market.
On April 23, 2009 the Julia R. Ewan Elementary School sold at auction for $1.2 million to Bill Meade, a man who once attended the school himself and lives in the neighborhood.
At the time Meade, wasn't sure what he wanted to do with the property.
"I just wanted it to be in good hands," says Meade.
Now he says he's done all he can with the school and it's time to sell it.
A realtor, who also lived in the area, approached Meade wanting to help sell it.
They took out an add in the paper listing the property for 1.8 million dollars about 600 thousand more than Meade paid in the auction.
Meade says it's in good shape but it can be costly to maintain in it's current state.
