In June, 2002 a group of concerned citizens of Nelson met at Pine Hill Baptist church to
discuss ways of acquiring the former Nelson Memorial High/Nelson Middle School for
use as a community center. This became a reality in June 2004 when the Nelson
County Board of Supervisors agreed to lease the school to a group called the
Millennium Group establishing the facility as a community center. The Millennium
Group was granted 501c tax-exempt status in April 2004.
In August of 2013, the Nelson County Board of Supervisors approved deeding the property to the Millennium Group.
