With its final 161 acres now up for auction, Patrick Henry Family Services is prepared to leave its historic 700-acre Brookneal campus for good. After serving children in need for nearly 60 years, the campus closed this month.
Despite the closure of the nonprofit’s residential boys home that had operated since 1961, CEO Robert Day said the organization’s presence in the community is far from gone.
The proceeds from the auction will be used to fund the opening of a family resource center in downtown Brookneal this September.
