Campus by the Farm Show Complex

There is a campus of old brick buildings on the hill across from the Farm Show Complex.

Does anyone know what is housed in those buildings and what it used to be? It looks like it used to be a college and it looks like it is currently used by the State.

Thank you.

There is a sign that says "DSG Annex". That is all I could locate.

DGS Annex is the Department of General Services

Looks a bit like Long Kesh.

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.

Re: Campus by the Farm Show Complex

They should renovate those for use by the legislature. A campus type dorm / apartment complex with rooms like a mid priced motel. Add conference rooms and a cafeteria.

Mandate that legislators have a choice - the dorm or no per diem.

They could run a shuttle between the dorm and the capitol complex.



Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.
