The Highland Lodge is now under contract with an anticipated closing date in October 2016. The prospective buyer is Heidi Lauren Duke, who was the stage director of the “First Annual Opera Spectacular” for the Greensboro Arts Alliance & Residency’s summer programming this year. She is a director and choreographer with experience staging productions both nationally and internationally. Details on the planned use for the Lodge are not set and a formal press release will be published in mid-October. In the interim, Ms. Duke welcomes support from the community and wants to celebrate the contributions of the Smith Family and the Lodge to the Greensboro community during its long history.
