Historic Casey Co., KY: Rocky Ford School, Ellisburg

2013-12-28 - Ellisburg, Casey Co., KY - Photo by Alan W. Reed.
I took the Rocky Ford School photos about 2 years ago.
The old school signage has faded with time and is now barely visible and only when the lighting is exactly "right". It appears to say, "District No. 45." with the year "1896." and has, at the bottom, what appears to be "J.E.M, Prin," as best I can make out. The letters are more distinct when rain soaks in the wood and highlights the contrast. The school has a lifespan of about 52 years. I think it closed in the consolidation era around 1948. -Alan W.
