|The Buck Creek Rosenwald School (SH-383) meets National Register Criterion A. Its significance is evaluated within the Historic Context Rosenwald Schools in Kentucky, 1916-1964. It is one of only two known former schools in Shelby County, Kentucky, whose construction occurred through the contribution of the Julius Rosenwald Fund. Both of the examples in Shelby County are extant, and both have been converted to use as homes since being used as schools. The Buck Creek School offers several features that make it a good example of this resource, which can be found throughout the southeastern states of the U.S.: still-rural setting, extant outhouses, basic form retained, and continued associations by former students. On this property we can observe many of the lessons taught by Rosenwald Schools.
