North Georgia Conference Enters Agreement To Sell Simpsonwood Property
The North Georgia Conference has entered into contracts with Gwinnett County and the City of Peachtree Corners for a total of $16 million for the sale of the Simpsonwood property to Gwinnett County for use as a passive park.
Simpsonwood has been a sacred and beautiful place for the Conference to work and serve others for more than 40 years. It will now be a pleasant place for the enjoyment of the Peachtree Corners and Gwinnett community for many years to come.
The Conference relocation committee is charged with making a proposal to the Board of Trustees recommending a new location for the United Methodist Center. Our priorities for a permanent location include affordability, accessibility, and visibility, as well as functionality and sustainability.
“We are confident that these priorities will be met and that the sale will benefit our mission, enhance the community, and honor the legacy of Ms. Ludie Simpson,” said Dr. John Simmons, chair of the Conference Board of Trustees
A special service of celebration and thanksgiving will be planned in the future as we give thanks for our time at Simpsonwood and move our headquarters from the property.
