FREEPORT – Auctioneer Dave Jones took bids at the former Harrison Lakeland Elementary School on Wednesday after an injunction was denied in Harrison County Common Pleas Court earlier that day.

The high bidders included Alan Miller of Holmesville, who secured the mineral rights, and Roger and Christina Gilpin, of Freeport, who plan to expand their software business and lease space at the building.

Harrison Youth Group officials are still hoping to secure a school, although a proviso restricts the site’s usage for education. Details in this weeks print edition of the Harrison News-Herald.
