Corinth school property sold to Siege and Battle of Corinth Commission


CORINTH, Mississippi — The city of Corinth has sold the old West Corinth Elementary School property to the Siege and Battle of Corinth Commission for $1,499.

The commission was the only bidder.

The vacant West Corinth school sits on battlefield property across from the interpretive center and the National Park Service wants the land to become part of the Corinth Unit of Shiloh National Military Park.

The West Corinth property is the second of three parcels formerly used as elementary schools which reverted to city ownership after they were no longer used as schools.

Last month, the Easom Outreach Foundation was awarded a lease to the former South Corinth school property for use as Easom Community Center.

Bids are pending on the third property, East Corinth Elementary.
