MacMurray College recently purchased the old Franklin Elementary School building on the corner of South Clay Avenue and Franklin Drive located across from Freesen Football Field on campus.

The College’s initial plan is to use the property for a new fitness center and weight room that will be ready for students to use this coming fall semester. Additional plans for the building are still under discussion and will be a part of the campus master facilities plan once completed.

“We are excited to move forward on this project,” Marcy Jones, director of communications and marketing, said. “Plans for the property are still in the development stage so we will have a better understanding of how we will fully utilize this building as the summer progresses.”
