Bidding has closed on a former state-run school and hospital in Chester County. The Embreeville State School and Hospital, on 225 acres in West Bradford Township, had been on sale since July.

Bids closed at 3 p.m. Wednesday, but the state's solicitations website did not indicate whether the state had awarded the property to a bidder. Bureau of Real Estate representatives did not return calls for comment.

The facility on Strasburg Road has been closed for some time, and the state was spending $600,000 a year to maintain it. - Aubrey Whelan
