The original Bourbon County High School was located in Millersburg. Operating from approximately 1911-1948, the school's graduates represented only a fraction of the population of Bourbon County due to its location in the northeastern portion of the county. Little Rock, Center Hill, Clintonville, and North Middletown also maintained High schools within the Bourbon County School System.
In an effort to create a more centralized environment, the upper grades of Millersburg, Little Rock, Clintonville, and Center Hill schools were merged to create the Bourbon County Vocational High School, which opened in the fall of 1948 on the site of the present middle school facility. North Middletown, however, retained its high school for several more years. The central high school was renamed Bourbon County High School in 1956, and completed consolidation with North Middletown High School in 1964 to become the sole high school in the county school district.
Several classrooms, a new library, and a cafeteria were added and by 1968 a junior high school was also built on the campus. In 1981 the high school and junior high switched buildings to locate BCHS at its present site.
