The building that housed Chanceford Elementary School in Red Lion was sold at auction last month after years of being on the market.

The 31,000-square-foot building, sitting on 8.2 acres located at 33 Muddy Creek Forks Road, was sold for $291,000 on Aug. 16, according to a representative for Hess Auction Group who facilitated the auction.

The 60-year-old property was on the market for years under Rock Commercial Real Estate after its closure in 2010 but never secured a buyer.

The final auction price is well under the $595,000 asking price under Rock, according to an old listing.

Red Lion Area School District Superintendent Scott Deisley said in July that the district could manage a surge in student enrollment at its existing buildings, further demonstrating the reason for the former elementary school building’s sale.
