Business making former Mid-Continent campus its new home

GRAVES COUNTY, KY — A west Kentucky company is moving its offices to a building on the former campus of Mid-Continent University.

West Kentucky and Tennessee Telecommunications is moving its offices from downtown Mayfield to the former MCU administration building, according to Bill Bartleman. In addition to serving as a county commissioner in McCracken County, Bartleman is the director of special projects for West Kentucky and Tennessee Telecommunications.

Bartleman says the company’s move is the first step in developing the former college campus into a technology park.

Mid-Continent closed in 2014 and filed for bankruptcy in 2016.

As Local 6 has previously reported, West Kentucky and Tennessee Telecommunications bought the campus in January 2017 for $1.8 million.
