Reconstruction Project at Garfield School Moving Forward

Efforts to renovate the former Garfield Elementary School are moving forward, reports KOTA News. The project, known as Garfield Green, broke ground in May 2016 and is in the process of being converted into 12 apartments. The project is scheduled to be completed this fall. 

Following the closure of the elementary school in 2001, Rapid City cardiologist Kelly Whitley purchased the building and land for $400,000, as reported by the Rapid City Journal. The building was utilized as a community arts center for children for several years. Black Hills Habitat for Humanity later purchased the property for $300,000 before selling it to the current owner and contractor, Glenn Barber & Associates, for $260,000.
