There are a lot of Scout Groups around the world who own their own
buildings. However, this does not seem to be as common in the BSA as it
is elsewhere. For instance, there is one Scout Group I know of in The
Netherlands that resides in a remodeled WWII fortress, and another that
took over a building that once housed a small brewery.
In deference to one of the Leaders who noted that a building stood
abandoned for two years after a Troop folded, I would say that there
could have been otehrs on the look-out for such a golden opportunity for
a home of their own.
After all, it gets to be a bit of a pain for a Pack or Troop to live out
of a church or school closet meeting after meeting, doesn't it?
