Bye, Bye, Blue House




The “Blue House,” an Old Bushdale Road landmark since 1998, was moved Saturday, after it was recently sold by the Rockdale ISD to Teal Holdings, which has Texas offices in Houston. Purchase price was $2,500. The RISD acquired the .36-acre plot, along with the house, in January, 2011, for $85,000. Marla Wallace, chief financial officer, said the district has no immediate plans for the land and purchased the acreage when it came on the market since it was adjacent to school property, including the junior-high (at right).
