Rocky Branch School — Wayne County, Kentucky


Rocky Branch School is located in the eastern part of Wayne County Kentucky near the McCreary County line between the communities of Rocky Branch and Coopersville on Kentucky State Route 92.


Rocky Branch School is a prime example of a school building built during President Franklin Roosevelt’s  New Deal and the WPA.


The school was built sometime in the 1930s and is built out of the same cut sandstone that was used at the Wayne County High School on down the road in neighboring Monticello that is now on the National Register of Historic Places.


At some point, probably in the 1960s the school recieved a small addition on the building’s south side.


Rocky Branch closed to students after the 1984-85 school year as Wayne County began a consolidation process that left them with more centralized schools in the county.
