Originally built in 1942, the old Wolfe County High School saw over 60 years as a educational institution, until its closing in 2005. After sitting vacant nearly a decade, the beloved Wolfe county landmark is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and has been transformed into 19 units of mixed-income housing for residents 55 and older.

The Campton School Apartments contain 13 one-bedroom, and 6 two-bedroom units. Sixteen of these units are designated as affordable housing, and includes handicap accessible units. Campton School Apartments also house the new Wolfe County Community Center, which features a full size gymnasium, a stage, state-of-the-art lighting and sound technology, and a concession area. The residents can also enjoy 2 community rooms, fitness center, and an elevator.
