The former Whitley City Elementary is located in the McCreary County community and county seat of Whitley City in Southern Kentucky along US 27.

The building is a classic example of the WPA buildings that were built in the 1930s around this area, made of native sandstone.  The building was built sometime around 1934.

A photo of this school just after construction was completed can be found by clicking on the link below.

Today the school sits abandoned.  I found one reference to it closing in 2008 when the new Whitley City Elementary was opened.
