A-B Tech Ivy Building

Ivy Renovation Project

The Ivy Building


Ivy Building Front

The history of a community contributes to its personality. Preserving the history of a place through its significant historic resources gives a community its unique character – providing a link to the roots of the community and its people.

A restored and renovated Ivy Building will allow the building to be alive once again and relive its past as an intimate space for lectures, choral productions, pop-up art classes, as well as film, theater, and other Continuing Education Community Enrichment classes. It can even host dances once again as Continuing Education dance classes practice their moves with evening “dress up” soirées. Ivy will bring to the A-B Tech campus, and the community as a whole, much needed multi-use space to energize, rejuvenate and stimulate both body and spirit.
