Hocking College Perry Campus

Hocking College’s Perry County campus is located on state Route 37 in New Lexington.

NEW LEXINGTON – Attorneys for Hocking College are sticking to their guns in a legal dispute with the Perry County Board of Commissioners over ownership rights to about 15 acres of land, part of a larger parcel the county donated to the college in 1993.

The county wants the unused portion of the property back, and has argued that it would never have donated the land in the first place had it known that Hocking College would one day try to develop part of it commercially to bring in revenue. The college’s recently announced plan to make money off the site, the county claims, is a breach of the original donation agreement, which should kick ownership of the land back to the commissioners.
