Dunham said the real estate agent told him the old school consists of approximately 85,000 square feet.
"But that is all four buildings together -- the gym, the office building and the high school together,'' he said.
The new ATV resort and lodge is urgently needed, Bramwell Mayor Louise Stoker said.
Although the seven-county trail system has been a significant success story for Southern West Virginia, its growth has been hampered by a lack of lodging facilities for out-of-town ATV riders. Stoker said the new ATV lodge will help.
"It will fill a need, and it will be available to people coming here on the first stop from the south,'' Stoker said.
Stoker said the old high school last operated as a K-5 school when it was closed in 2004.
"We are very excited about the new owners of the building,'' Stoker said.
