A former Franklin church will see new life as a special education learning center.
The former St. Mary Catholic Church in downtown Franklin has been sold to the Warren County Educational Service Center.
WCESC Superintendent Tom Isaacs confirmed the sale, which was finalized Tuesday.
WCESC purchased for $400,000 the entire campus, which included the former church, rectory, garage, parish hall and a parking lot across the street. That was below the church’s asking price of about $650,000, according to Isaac.
