Whittier, CA — Whittier 360 News Network has received confirmation from multiple sources that the historic Wardman House, a property owned by Whittier College, has entered the escrow stage of the real estate transaction, indicating a sale has been agreed upon. The news comes after the group Save Whittier College alleged the house had been sold earlier this week.
The message received by Whittier 360 News Network confirms other reports we have been receiving from anonymous sources since Monday. The sale of the historic property has been the subject of controversy and speculation for some time, and the recent confirmation has only intensified the debate surrounding the future of the Wardman House.
As of now, neither Whittier College nor its administration, including College President Oubre and other board members, have issued a statement or responded to requests for information from our news agency regarding the alleged sale. The lack of transparency on this matter has raised concerns among the local community, students, and faculty members who have a vested interest in the future of the historic property.
The Wardman House, with its rich history and significance to the Whittier community, has been an integral part of the college's identity. The recent sale and the secrecy surrounding the transaction have left many questioning the college's commitment to preserving the house and the heritage it represents.
Whittier 360 News Network will continue to closely monitor the situation and provide updates as more information becomes available. We have called the Whittier College Offices of Marketing and Communication but it went straight to voicemail. We have left a message and are waiting to hear back. We will also make further attempts to reach Whittier College administration and board members for their input on this developing story. Stay tuned for the latest updates on this breaking news.
