A Taste of History

The former Douglas School, built in Lexington Ky in 1948 was constructed for Junior and Senior High students. Douglas School

proudly served its African American student population until 1972 when the school was closed as part of Fayette County's

desegregation plan.

First African Baptist Church purchased Douglas School in 1981 and after undergoing extensive renovations, a part of

Lexington's history was reborn as Kanisa Apartments (later renamed to Ferrill Square Apartments), committed to serving and meeting the needs of the broader Lexington community.
