The property is owned by the Levert family, a longtime sugar-cane farming family now in real estate, St. Martinville Mayor Thomas Nelson said.
Nelson said the family wanted to donate the property to the city, which in turn planned to donate the land to the college, but deadlines made it more feasible for the family to donate directly to the college. St. Martinville has committed to paying the cost to set up utilities on the property, Nelson said.
Nelson credited the Leverts for helping retain the college in St. Martinville.
