Chicago Hope Academy was given a Rhode Island inn. The 14- room mansion was built in 18-31 and closed in 2006.The property owner-- Russell Jeffrey-- bought the inn for $1.5 million.

Jeffrey made the donation because he knows Robert Muzikowski, who founded the West Side school. The two worked together in New York 20 years ago.

It's not clear whether Chicago Hope will re-open the property, sell it or re-develop it.
