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.
Back in the mid to late 90s to around the year 2000 Bell County went through a couple of rounds of school consolidations. Those schools closed included Arjay, Cubbage, Blackmont, Wards Chapel, Harmony and I think Buckeye School was among those closed around this time. Students from Buckeye School now attend school at Lone Jack School Center at the intersection of KY 92 and US 25E.
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.
