Old Frankfort Stone High School, also known as Old Stoney, is a historic high school building located at Frankfort, Clinton County, Indiana. It was built in 1892, and is a 2 1/2-story, Richardsonian Romanesque style sandstone building on a raised basement. It has Indiana limestone trim, a large round arched entrance, four large stone chimneys, and four-story corner tower with a tall conical roof. The building was damaged by fire in 1922, and rebuilt with the work completed in 1926. The building housed a junior high school from 1962 to 1974, after which it ceased use as a public school.[2]:2–3

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1] It is located in the Christian Ridge Historic District.

Since 1980, the Clinton County Historical Society and Museum has been located in on the second floor of Old Stoney.
