MC Napier High School — Perry County, Kentucky

Ive passed the school many times. I can remember when MC Napier High School and Dilce Combs High School merged to form Perry County Central. I was in my early years of high school then and I can remember watching the news on channel 57 detailing all of the new amenities the students would have at the new high school. I was envious.

Before I dive into the specifics of MC Napier, Im going to speak a bit about it’s counterpart, Dilce Combs High School located on the other side of the county is basically a twin structure to MC Napier, but unlike the 3 story MC Napier High School Dilce Combs was two stories. That building is currently occupied by local offices.

The MC Napier High School was closed alongside Dilce Combs High School in 1995 when they were merged to form the newly opened Perry County Central High School. After the MC Napier grounds ceased operation as a high school the county district continued to utilize it as an Alternative School until 2005.

Today the school stands gutted, fallen victim to vandalism and the elements.
