District Purchases Concord Farmers Club

April 20, 2021

Lindbergh Schools and the Concord Farmers Club have reached an agreement for the district to purchase property located at 10140 Concord School Road. This property will provide Lindbergh Schools flexibility and space to support its long-term master facility plan for continuous improvement.

Lindbergh Schools has purchased the Concord Farmers Club for its appraised value of $668,000. The land is approximately 3.56 acres and sits next door to Sperreng Middle School. The purchase continues a tradition of positive partnership between the two organizations. For the past several years, district families and staff have used the Farmers Club for overflow event parking for both Concord Elementary School and Sperreng.

“Looking ahead, this land has several possibilities for Sperreng, including an outdoor learning space, green space for activities and athletics, or additional room to improve traffic flow,” said Superintendent Dr. Tony Lake. “We are grateful for the opportunity to purchase this property and continue planning for our students’ future success.”

The Concord Farmers Club opened in 1873 and was in operation for 148 years before closing its doors in January 2021. The Farmers Club hosted an online auction earlier this month to liquidate furniture and assets inside the building, and the district does not anticipate any increased maintenance costs or activity on the property until a long-range plan is determined.
