The property located at 401 S. College Street in Covington (bordered by W. Church Street to the north, Green Street to the west, Seminary Avenue to the south, and S. College Street to the east) received approximately $32,000 in federal grant funds in 1978 to construct tennis courts, among other things. Upon accepting those grant funds the 4.2 acre site was restricted in its use in perpetuity. Which simply means, from that time forward the site could only be used for public outdoor recreation. The City of Covington cannot demolish the old grammar school building (which is in a state of significant disrepair) or use the property for any other use without completing a "conversion" with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation.
