High Potential Property in Millbrook: Bennett School for Girls

I drove by this place a couple of weeks ago and had to stop. Apparently it’s a former women’s college — The Bennett School for Girls — whose doors were shuttered in 1978. I’ve seen a few references about redeveloping it, but as far as I know it’s just sitting there, waiting to become and eco-resort.

  1. Wow how sad! It looks like it suffered a fire though. I wish developers would take closer looks at these properties instead of killing trees to make resorts in new areas. Shame.

  2. High potential, hmmm…. Is that a euphemism for white elephant?

  3. Wow…too bad they’d have to tear it down. The unfortunate thing about construction is that it’s cheaper to start from scratch then it is to renovate/rebuild from old.


  4. Does anyone know the asking price?
