PJC Planning to Sell 47 Acres Back to Local Industrial Fund

With a view to future expansion and knowing that their 20-year lease of a building on the Sulphur Springs High School campus would soon end, Paris Junior College purchased 47 acres of land in Sulphur Springs next to TxDOT offices on State Highway 19 several years ago. The intent was to build a new Sulphur Springs campus. However, those plans changed.

PJC secured an architect who provided plans for a future campus at the sight but the junior college regents quickly realized the cost would be prohibitive at that time and with the number of students enrolled. They began to seek a different location.

Recently, PJC has opened a new campus in the renovated facilities that had once housed a lumber/hardware store locally. The cost was more reasonable and fit the criteria that would allow the addition of courses the college desired to offer locally.

Currently, the college is planning to sell the 47 acres purchased from the Hopkins County Industrial Fund. They plan to sell the property back to the Industrial Fund.
