Lamplighter Now a Landowner

As of yesterday, Lamplighter is no longer a Hockaday tenant. The outlandish $1-per-year lease that ran through 2027 was cut short when the school decided to purchase the land out-right.

Communications director Melisa Dorrill said acquiring the land from Hockaday has been a 10-year process, with the main negotiations occurring during the past year. The details have been kept hush-hush by both parties as per terms of the agreement.

Now that the cat’s out of the bag, Lamplighter celebrated with a dirt cupcake party for all of the school’s pre-kindergarten through fourth grade classes. Trustee David Miller was on hand for the festivities and expressed his support.

“Now we’ll have this land forever,” Miller said.
