CEO Jay Baum signs a lease-purchase agreement for the new ACBL headquarters building as Horn Lake MS City Attorney Billy Campbell looks on. The agreement is for five years with an option to purchase after one year.
The 30,000-square-foot building will be renovated to accommodate the Headquarters staff. Baum says the work probably will begin in mid-July. "We hope to be able to move in before the end of the year," he says.
Just off of Interstate 55 in North Mississippi, the new facility will be easily accessible for visitors to the Memphis area and will have ample room for housing the North American Contract Bridge Museum, the world’s largest collection of bridge memorabilia, the Albert H. Morehead Memorial Library and the ACBL Bridge Hall of Fame.
