The Jacksonville Dream Center Foundation is moving into the former Jacksonville Theatre Guild Office.

Dream Center Foundation Vice President Steve Cantrell says the organization purchased the 210 West College Avenue property, located just south of the Downtown Square, during an auction on Saturday.

Cantrell says the Dream Center Foundation was the high bidder among “six to seven” other individuals.

“About a week and a half prior to it, we got a few phone calls from business people and people in the community who said this might be a good location for us to start. They would support us if we wanted to do that.”

Cantrell says this will be the first permanent location for the Jacksonville Dream Center Foundation.

“We are community oriented with hands on education for students and adults. We are trying to create a workforce with work ethics. It is centrally located, easy to get to and well visible,” says Cantrell.

Minor changes are taking place now and Cantrell expects weekly updates on the building throughout the year.

The building sold for $25,000.
