Virtual Settlement Held to Finalize the Sale of Armstrong Middle School

As part of the agree­ment to sell Armstrong, the actu­al build­ing will be demol­ished by the buy­er, 2201 Street Road, LLC.  Additionally, the Real Estate trans­fer tax will be assumed by the buyer. 

On October 10, 2016, the Bensalem Township School District Board of School Directors approved the autho­riza­tion to enter into an Agreement of Sale of the Neil A. Armstrong Middle School Property, which con­sist­ed of the School Building and approx­i­mate­ly thir­ty (30) acres with sub­stan­tial frontage on Street Road in Bensalem Township, Bucks County, PA

District Superintendent, Dr. Samuel Lee, said Tuesday that the funds received through the sale “couldn’t come at a bet­ter time.”  “All school dis­tricts across the nation are fac­ing finan­cial chal­lenges due to the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic.  I feel relieved because of the length of the process,” he said.  “The pro­ceeds from the sale can be used to sup­port cap­i­tal projects like build­ings, grounds and facil­i­ty upgrades, and maintenance.” 

From 1953 to 1969, the Armstrong prop­er­ty served as Bensalem High School until the cur­rent facil­i­ty was built in 1969.  Then it became Neil A. Armstrong Middle School until June 2005.  Armstrong was used for sport­ing events and com­mu­ni­ty activ­i­ties for the past decade until the new gym­na­si­um at Bensalem High School.
