Once serving as the only place in the community where African-Americans received education at the secondary level, The Oliver School site provided educational opportunities from 1892-1956. The Oliver Street School building stood, at its construction, as a remarkably well-constructed edifice. As a result, it remains as the most prominent feature of the local landscape within this important historical theme. The Oliver Street School is the only surviving historic African-American community high school structure in Clark County, Kentucky, which makes its transformation and continued use even more significant.

The original classrooms have been carefully and expertly transformed into comfortable apartments which include all modern systems and amenities. The apartments feature high ceilings, large windows, spacious closets, individually controlled thermostats, and fully equipped kitchens.

There are 11 gracious apartments in total with 3 one-bedroom units, 5 two-bedroom units and 3 three-bedroom units. All homes are fully accessible with a new elevator that serves all levels. The Community Center and furnished Community Room serves all residents.

The Oliver School Apartments offer convenient, comfortable, and affordable living at various rent levels through financing from the Kentucky Housing Corporation as well as Kentucky Bank. Income restrictions will apply for all apartments.
