Big Creek Elementary — Perry County, Kentucky

Its rather odd to find three school districts who border each other have a school by the same name in all three. That was the case in Clay, Leslie and Perry County Kentucky until several years ago. I have already covered the closed Big Creek Elementary School in Leslie County in this blog. That school closed several years ago. The school covered in this entry is the Big Creek Elementary that was located in Perry County.

Big Creek Elementary was closed in 2014 due to declining enrollment and a planned consolidation of schools in Perry County. At the end of the 2013-14 school year Big Creek was home to 136 students in grades K-8.

It’s been brutally cold here today so i honestly havent even been out of the house.  To be quite honest I havent been much more than out of my bed haha.   That doesnt mean I havent been bored.  So I got to looking on an SD card from last fall and found some pictures and Ive been playing around with them with different effects on ipiccy ( which btw is the best , most user friendly free photo editing site I’ve found)   [www.ipiccy.com]  Enjoy.

My personal favorite is this picture of downtown Harlan, Kentucky that I took back in the summer from Ivy Hill.
