A former Daviess County school will soon be converted into something else. The old Masonville School was sold this morning for more than $200,000.
No word yet on what will happen to the 65-year-old building next. But the auction listing states with some zoning changes, it could be converted into a commercial business or even an apartment complex.
“Some other schools have been turned into antique malls, for storage,” said Silas Deane of Alliance Auctioneers. “I know one was used by a book binding company. There’s things that can go into a school. People have a lot of ideas.”
The building was also home to Beacon Central High School until students were moved to the old Daymar College campus in Owensboro earlier this year.
