The Vincentian Digest Eastern Province USA reported an article that said MIS Northampton sold again.

From the article …

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia on Thursday said it will sell the 454-acre Mary Immaculate Center in Lehigh Township for $5.5 million.

The former seminary and retreat center on Cherryville Road has been closed since 2009. The buyer, David T. Davis, is “currently determining its future use,” the archdiocese said in a statement.

In an email, archdiocese spokesman Ken Gavin said he could offer no further information about Davis.

“The only information I am authorized by the purchasing party regarding that particular transaction is his name and the purchase price,” Gavin wrote.

The transaction is one of three property sales in eastern Pennsylvania totaling $56.2 million that the archdiocese will use to help plug gaps in its balance sheet.

The other sales include a 200-plus-acre property in Delaware County for $47 million and 55 acres in Chester County for $3.7 million.

The Congregation of Missions of St. Vincent de Paul built the Mary Immaculate Center in 1939. The archdiocese bought it in 1996 for $4 million.

From 1991 to 2005, the center housed the Spirituality Year Program for seminarians studying at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Lower Merion Township. When that program ended in 2005, the property served as a retreat center until it closed.”
