Evers has some potential tenants, and possible buyers for portions of the property, which is described as ‘gorgeous inside and out’

    The former Glenmore Recovery Center property on U.S. Highway 2 has been sold. Greenberg Realty agent Shirley Iverson told the Times that Jeff Evers, a developer who owns numerous properties in Crookston, took ownership of the property Friday after RiverView Health’s lease expired.

    The property located at 23615 US Hwy 2 SW was built by the Sisters of St. Joseph to serve as their central house of meeting, administration, novitiate, and retirement. It was formerly known as “St. Joseph’s Provincial House” on Marywood Road.

    The 54,000 square foot facility is surrounded by just over 160 acres of land including significant waterfront property. When asked about plans, Iverson says Evers has a few potential renters and, possibly, buyers for different parts of the property that he will pursue in the next month.

    “It’s a gorgeous building and Jeff wants to emphasize that,” explained Iverson. “The goal would be to add to the area’s economic vitality in numerous ways.”

    “The exciting thing is that it won’t be torn down and demolished,” she added.

    “It’s in beautiful condition inside and out,” Evers told the Times.

    Iverson says the purchase won’t hinder Evers’ plans for downtown Crookston’s Fournet building where a written agreement is in place to accommodate Tri-Valley Opportunity Council, Inc. on the second floor.
