PHOTOS: Rarely Seen Historic Pictures of the VA Homes in Fort Thomas

The closing date is imminent.

The historic military homes in the back of Tower Park in Fort Thomas, Kentucky will soon be getting a new owner after years of neglect and abandonment.

After 15 years of the city talking with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Fort Thomas was finally able to obtain the homes for $510,000.

Bloomfield/Schon, the developer who is undertaking the project, will have to oversee the environmental cleanup of lead paint and asbestos in the building before renovations can begin.

The VA will then refund the $510,000 purchase price to offset costs of renovations.

U.S. Army officers lived in the homes until the 1940s. Other federal employees continued to live in some of the homes until the later 1990s. By the early 2000s they were all vacant.

All of the homes are on the National Register of Historic Places.
