Property sale

A transfer document for the old library property was filed with the Dickson County Register of Deeds office Nov. 5. SEAN BARRY

Gary Daniel and Kyle Ruf have bought the former library building from Dickson County, according to the transfer document known as the warranty deed.

They paid $625,000 for the 4.3-acre property, the document filed Nov. 5 with the Dickson County Register of Deeds office shows.

The property is at 204 Henslee Drive near the intersection with Mathis Road (state Highway 46) in Dickson.

Daniel’s signature is the only one for a purchaser, though the document identifies Ruf as one of the grantees. One address, for an insurance business, is given for both of them and identifies them as the new owners.

A phone message for Daniel and Ruf left at the business inquiring about plans for the land, was not returned.

The former BellSouth building that housed the Dickson County Public Library has long been deteriorating. The library moved to 303 Henslee Dr. early this year.

The Dickson County Commission declared the library building and parking lot surplus property, and a blind auction ensued. The $625,000 was the highest bid, officials have said.

Records from the state Comptroller’s Office show the county paid $1.4 million for the land in 2002.
