Androscoggin Land Trust buys Camp Gustin in Sabattus
Androscoggin Land Trust closed on the 95-acre Camp Gustin property Sept. 15 after raising $325,000 in donations and securing a gap funding loan. The Gustin family fully supported the deal which will allow local Boy Scouts to continue using the grounds.
Maine’s Androscoggin Land Trust just achieved a goal some thought it wouldn’t be able to achieve: It purchased the 95-acre Camp Gustin, located about 30 miles southwest of the state capital, for $415,000. The Trust, which solicited public donations to conserve the land, was able to complete the acquisition after it secured a loan from nonprofit The Conservation Fund and a grant from the state.
Jon Mercier, designated broker/agent at Maine Source Homes & Realty, offered a check for $2,700 to the Androscoggin Land Trust, the first of the six beneficiaries, at Side By Each Brewing Co. in Auburn on March 31.
