Historic Schools of Warren County, Kentucky by Donna C. Parker

In 1855, the Kentucky Superintendent of Public Instruction reported there were 3,575 children of school age in Warren County, Kentucky. An average of 1,107 students actually attended the county's common schools that year. Of the 58 schools reporting, there was one five-month, one six-month and one seven-month school. Two four-month schools were in the count with the remaining 53 being in session for three months.

This website presents over 100 common schools listed in Warren County's Official Record Book of the County Superintendent. It goes a step further and shows many other schools which were once or still are a part of the Warren County school system.
