Charlotte, NC (August 2012) – Bailey W. Patrick with Merrifield Patrick Vermillion arranged the sale of the Snyder Campus of Elon Homes and Schools for Children to Elon University.

The site is a 20-acre property that includes five buildings and is located south of Trollinger Avenue and is adjacent to the university’s South Campus.

This purchase is the latest chapter in a partnership that began in 1907 when the Christian Orphanage, the forerunner of Elon Homes and Schools for Children, opened adjacent to the campus of Elon College.

“We are proud to add this property to the Elon University campus and maintain the educational use of this area of our community. Our students have enjoyed the benefits of the facilities that were made possible through our original purchase of a 75-acre portion of the Elon Homes campus in 2003. This additional property will be a valuable asset for Elon.”

Leo M. Lambert, President
Elon University
