The Daniel C. Gainey Conference Center, operated in Owatonna, Minn., by the University of St. Thomas, closed in June 2014 and the property has been sold to Meridian Behavioral Health LLC. Beginning in January 2015, Meridian will operate a chemical dependency treatment facility on the property. St. Thomas thanks everyone for their patronage of Gainey since it opened in 1982.
In an online auction on May 19, the Winton Guest House, designed by architect Frank Gehry and donated to the university in 2007, was sold to an anonymous bidder. Proceeds from the sale will go to the university's Art History Department. Read more about the auction in the St. Thomas Newsroom.
