Today I got out and decided to visit a couple of old schools in Bell County. One I not only visited, but also got inside. The other, Buckeye School located in western Bell County was much to my surprise completely gone. Buckeye School was located on State Route 92 between Pineville and Williamsburg.
Buckeye closed at the end of the 1989 school year. I originally had thought (assumed) that the school closed when Cubbage and the other schools did, but apparently Buckeye had closed much sooner. Which makes it pretty amazing that the building stayed standing and empty as long as it did. Thanks to a few readers who provided this information!
Luckily, I had taken some pictures of the school in 2008 from the exterior.
Now, the school is nothing but a memory. As always, if you have any information to add to this entry, please message or comment.
