Middle Georgia State buys old Scottish Inn off Eisenhower Parkway

The Middle Georgia State College Real Estate Foundation has purchased the former Scottish Inn, located at the southeast corner of the college’s Macon campus.

The foundation purchased the motel and restaurant property for $950,000 from Frank Walthall, according to a Wednesday news release from the college. The sale was finalized Nov. 17.

The property, located at 5022 Romeiser Drive, is about six acres and is adjacent to the west side of the Eisenhower Parkway exit ramp off the southbound lanes of Interstate 475. The college now owns all the land from Romeiser Drive to I-475, the release states.

“As we move toward university status and work on a campus master plan, purchasing this property simply made sense,” Nancy Stroud, the college’s vice president for fiscal affairs, said in the release.

The buildings on the property will be demolished after asbestos abatement. Exactly what the property will be used for will be decided at a later date, Stroud said.
