SLIDESHOW: Family Scholar House to open up in old Maupin Elementary School

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Starting Wednesday, a historic school building in Louisville's Parkland neighborhood is getting new life.

The old Maupin Elementary School was built in 1891, but has been boarded up for more than a decade. Today, the school returns to its educational roots.

Family Scholar House is opening its $11 million residential campus. The facility will provide housing and support for 48 families as the single-parent earns a college degree.

It's the fourth campus for Family Scholar House, and is seen as an important part of the effort to revitalize the Parkland neighborhood.
