A big piece of Harrodsburg’s history is up for sale. The former Harrodsburg High School building is for sale for $375,000.
The historic 90,000 square foot school building sits on 7.46 acres. The former school, which was constructed in 1923, offers classrooms and offices, a commercial kitchen with walk-in freezer and refrigerator, two gymnasiums with hardwood floors, scoreboards and bleachers, and an auditorium with stage and curtains, according to its Zillow listing.
Former tenants of the building, which had been renamed the Harrodsburg Community Center, have found other homes.
Mercer Transformation has been provided with office space at the Conover Education Center courtesy of Campbellsville University.
Mercer Transformation had an agreement to manage the property with the owner, Keith Currens, a Harrodsburg High School alumnus who bought the building from the Mercer County School District for $200,000 back in 2016.
Pam Sims, president of Mercer Transformation, said the expense of running the building had grown too big after Kentucky Utilities doubled the electric rates.
The Campbellsville University club basketball team has begun playing games at Burgin Independent School.
On Monday, Jan. 15, the former school will host the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, starting with a pancake breakfast at 8 a.m.
