The reader who tipped me off on the sale referred to it as ‘Ambassador Hall.’

I being in the building personally decades ago, a couple of times.

Anyway, I thought some might be interested to know that another of the Ambassador properties was on the market.  The last Herbert W. Armstrong purchased several Merritt family properties as part of the campus of the old Ambassador College.
