The building was built in 1936 as part of the WPA (works progress administration) and was constructed of cut stone similar to many school buildings in eastern Kentucky of this vintage including the schools at Ages (Harlan County) and Cannel City (Morgan County)

In 2007 Morgan County consolidated three schools into West Liberty Elementary leaving this building closed to students. In 2012 that school was destroyed by the devastating West Liberty tornado. A school was rebuilt between the communities of West Liberty and Wrigley and named Wrigley Elementary. That new facility opened in January 2014.
