Our Mission

The Olive Hill Center for Arts & Heritage has administered the historic Olive Hill High School ever since its incorporation in 1998. We are located in Olive Hill, KY, a rural community set in the foothills of Appalachia.

The organization purchased the historic 1929 high school building that had been abandoned, and formed an organization with this stated mission: “Through restoration and preservation of the historic Olive Hill High School, we will create and administer a center for making arts, education, and cultural history accessible to our community.

Over its years of operation, the Center has brought a variety of arts programming to the Olive Hill area, including historical dramas, visual art lessons and exhibits, and seasonal musical performances. It is a general proponent and partner in the arts and education for the entire population of Olive Hill, Carter County, and beyond.

Olive Hill Historical Society has changed its name to Olive Hill Center for Arts & Heritage in Oct. 2023 to align our name with our programming.
