Our Mission

The Olive Hill Historical Society, Inc. has administered the Olive Hill Center for Arts & Education ever since its incorporation in 1999. We are located in Olive Hill, KY, Carter County, a rural community set in the foothills of Appalachia.

The Historical Society purchased a 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 Center for Arts and Education, 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.
