Mercer County was awarded a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) to help renovate the YMCA building in downtown Harrodsburg.

The YMCA facility used to be the city's armory building, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  It was built in 1956.  It has been the county's YMCA facility for the past 33-years.

The building's renovation will modernize the structure and create more space by converting approximately 5,000 square feet of storage area into a wellness center, locker rooms, and a children's area.

In addition, the city will clear two adjacent properties to create a new parking lot next to the facility.
