Renew/Modernize Cooper House

This project will renovate the Cooper House for the College of Agriculture, Food, and Environment. Cooper House, located on the corner of Nicholasville Road and Cooper Drive, was constructed in approximately 1880 and acquired by UK in 1940. The building is on the University’s list of historical structures and was home to Dean Thomas Poe Cooper for whom the House is named. Currently the house is vacant and needs renovation. The renovation and restoration of the Cooper House will include a reception area to welcome prospective students, faculty, visitors, and industry partners; meeting rooms; and space to showcase goods and products.
