Last month, Tennessee Children’s Home completed its new main campus on Dr. Robertson Road in Spring Hill after selling the original campus at 804 Branham Hughes Circle in 2019.
The organization, which is associated with Churches of Christ, provides care and intervention for abused, neglected and orphaned children through its four campuses across the state.
The Columbia Daily Herald reported that the new $15 million campus officially opened Oct. 18 on 45 acres of land at 2225 Dr. Robertson Road that had been purchased in 2009. A ribbon cutting was held on the following Friday and a public open house on Oct. 30.
The sale of the old campus and fundraising efforts have covered most of the cost, but around $1.3 million still needs to be paid, according to the Herald. Donors can purchase engraved bricks that will be placed around the facility’s flagpole for $150 or $300.
