Downtown YMCA seeks new home as building sale complete

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The YMCA on Sumter Street in downtown Columbia is now looking for a new home after the sale of the building completed earlier this week, according to a letter sent to supporters.

The Y had been at the Sumter Street location for over a century before they decided to sell the property to the nearby First Baptist Church, which owns nearly every other piece of property on the block. 

But the Y will remain open for the next 18 months while officials seek a new home for the organization.

"We are actively evaluating possible sites for our new location and are committed to remaining in downtown Columbia," YMCA of Columbia CEO Bryan Madden said.
