Lee County-- Construction plans are complete and renovations will start soon on an historic building in Lee County.

The county bought the old Historic Lee County High School from the school system in 2001. Work will start in a few weeks to turn it into a community theater complete with a 300-seat auditorium and dressing rooms. Prisoners on a mobile construction crew from the Department of Corrections will complete the job.

"This crew is very affordable. Sometimes they're not as fast as a private contractor but it was a way that we could take advantage of some benefits that the state has for us and make our money go further to be honest," says county administrator Langford Holbrook.

If there's enough sales tax money, renovations could also be done upstairs. The project should take six months to a year.
