Little Rock Consolidated School




Little Rock is a small village in Bourbon county off of KY 537 near Paris. It was originally called Flat Rock, but that name was already taken by a town in Pulaski County. They renamed the community Little Rock, for all the limestone in the area. I found this old school, built in 1929. We stopped to admire the beautiful old building and thought to ourselves that it was in remarkably good shape for it's age. When I got to the other side of the building, I found out why. Someone is living there! What an awesome house this would make! Imagine all the room! Whoever lives there is doing a wonderful job preserving this piece of history.

This is an example of the many beautiful limestone rock fences in the area.

Every month...out in Kansas...there's a school property like this that comes up for sale. Everybody wants to acquire but after you get it...then it's a hassle.
