State scraps plans to sell former Pennsylvania hospital grounds

The state of Pennsylvania has scrapped plans to sell the 300-acre former Harrisburg (Pa.) State Hospital Grounds, PennLive reported Nov. 23. 

The property had been authorized to be sold through a law passed in 2017 by the General Assembly. In 2019, the state had reached a proposed agreement of sale with the Dauphin County Redevelopment Authority. 

The agreement expired last January. Harrisburg State Hospital has been closed since 2006. The state plans to use at least part of the grounds for laboratory space.
