Songer Whitewater’s former headquarters in Fayette County is going on the auction block.
Goldman Associates Inc. of Charleston will hold the auction March 15. The 100-acre complex along U.S. 19 near Hico includes a 100-site campground, a 7,000-square-foot headquarters building, two bunkhouses, five cabins and a lounge.
Jay Goldman with Goldman Associates tells the Charleston Gazette that Songer no longer needs the property.
Songer joined Lansing-based Adventures on the Gorge in 2011.
A preliminary information packet for the auction says the property’s appraised value is more than $1 million.

Gee returning to WVU as interim president
E. Gordon Gee is returning to West Virginia University as interim president, five months after retiring from Ohio State University after remarks he made jabbing Roman Catholics and Southeastern Conference schools were made public.
The West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission approved Gee’s hiring Friday, a day after the WVU Board of Governors made its recommendation without announcing a name.
Gee’s stay is expected to be temporary and his annual salary was set at $450,000. The WVU board has said the interim president will be in place by January but won’t serve in the permanent job, which it wants to fill by next fall. Former President Jim Clements accepted the same position at Clemson University in November.
