VFMA and Eastern University in land talks
Wednesday, March 31, 2010

By Sam Strike

A land sale between Valley Forge Military Academy & College and  
neighboring Eastern University is under discussion, Eastern officials  
said this week.

A transaction, which Eastern representatives said is “still very much  
up in the air,” could involve Valley Forge selling a 19.4-acre parcel  
south of its main campus to Eastern, which has its 92-acre main campus  
less than one mile away.

The land under discussion is bordered by Eagle Road, Radnor Street  
Road and Walnut Avenue in the section of North Wayne where residences  
and institutions, including also Cabrini College, mix.

Valley Forge’s campus is 120 acres, according to the school. Its  
representatives were unavailable for comment for this article.

In 2007 Eastern University bought a 1.6-acre residential parcel next  
to its campus for administrative use for $1.25 million, according to  
Delaware County records.

Also that year the school added a dorm, classroom building and parking  
lot to its campus.

Last year Valley Forge announced plans for new academic facilities  
that would allow the school to more than double its college population  
to about 500 cadets.

Among the options to locate the new Military College of Pennsylvania  
building was the parcel being discussed for sale.

Main Line Media News will continue to update this story as more  
details become available.
