Arjay Elementary School — Bell County, Kentucky


The missing piece in the late 90s and early 2000’s tour of abandoned schools from Bell County consolidation (Minus Ward Chapel because it was razed several years before I became interested in photography)  is Arjay Elementary.


Arjay Elementary was located on state route 66 about 5 miles northeast of the county seat of Pineville.


Arjay had 126 students enrolled at the beginning of the 1999-2000 school year.


The school is basically a carbon copy of the schools at Cubbage, Harmony and Blackmont, all built in the 1950s.



Today most of the windows are knocked out, the doors are knocked down and the building is open for vandals.
