The Campton School Apartments development involves the historic adaptive reuse of the historic Old Wolfe County High School located at 166 Wolfe County Elementary School Road, in Campton, Wolfe County Kentucky 41301. The renovation has been completed and is opening the new space in January 2016, but was most recently used as Wolfe County Elementary School, until closing in 2005. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the architectural crown jewel of the City of Campton. With overwhelming public support, the project has been transformed into 19 apartments of mixed-income housing as well as the new Wolfe County Community Center.
On the residential side, the project has 13 one-bedroom, and six two-bedroom apartments. Most of the apartments have been reserved for lower to moderate income level resident. All apartments will serve seniors 55 and older. These apartments are located in the main portion of the building where the former classrooms were located and contain approximately 23,551 gross square feet of space.
In all areas of the building, the historic character of the building has been preserved but the interior has been completely updated and modernized. New HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems have been installed throughout and the apartment interiors include new, energy efficient appliances. Handicap accessibility has been paramount in the renovation. The site has been reworked to allow for convenient and safe parking, a new elevator and on-grade access to the building.
The Grand RE-Opening of this marvelous structure will be held on January 15, 2016. The community is invited to attend. Our staff will be on-site to provide information and give tours. We encourage you to apply for an apartment and be part of Wolfe County’s exciting new future in this historic building! Accepts Section 8.
