The Associated Press

HANOVER— Dartmouth College is planning to sell the former house of its founder.

The Valley News reports a Christian academic group called the Eleazar Wheelock Society is slated to buy the property on Tuesday for $854,000.

Dartmouth spokeswoman Diana Lawrence says the society plans to renovate the house and use it to house students.

The 242-year-old mansion was built in 1773, four years after the Rev. Eleazar Wheelock founded Dartmouth.

The Hanover college has owned the building and rented it out for commercial use since 2007. It is currently home to several offices and small businesses.
