Munfordville in Hart County, Kentucky — The American South (East South Central)
Hart County One-Room Schools
In 1945, Hart County had 67 One-Room Schools scattered throughout the county. These 67 schools served students in grades first through eighth.
Not quite a decade later, all One-Room Schools in Hart County had been closed. At that time - 1954 - schools in Hart County were racially-segregated, and the schools serving African-American pupils were known as colored schools. (designated by asterisks below) By 1965, all segregated schools had been abolished.
In loving memory, and with humble gratitude, we recognize the dedicated educators who taught at these one-room schools with following list.
