Harrodsburg Graded School Built 1889

The Harrodsburg Graded School was built in 1889 on the northern extension of Main Street on North Main Hill. The school was a state of the art facility in it’s time, and originally featuring six large classrooms and a meeting hall with central stair hall. A new High School was build adjacent to this building in 1911 and served as such until 1924. Both buildings then served grades 1-8 until the mid 1950’s when they were replaced with a new school. This building then became Royalty’s Furniture Company for over 50 years who made additions including a commercial store-front and two substantial rear warehouse structures with freight elevator. Featuring a large double lot with .601 acre, this former school property represents early developments in Kentucky’s education efforts and hold great future potential.
