The 15,600 square feet footprint of Barren County High School's new JROTC training facility has been made, marking the beginning of construction for the latest addition to the Barren County High School campus located just off the Cumberland Parkway and the 31-E Bypass on Trojan Trail in Glasgow.  

This latest $1.6 million construction project for Barren County Schools will include a large, open workout area, two classrooms, two locker rooms, two sets of gang restrooms, and a suite of offices, among other areas.  Some of the features of the facility include:

•        Large concrete patio area on the south end of the building

•        Climate controlled interior throughout the building via a Variable Refrigerant Viscosity (VRC) HVAC system

•        Artificial turf in the large open training area

•        Metal roofing with metal and brick sides

•        Burgundy and sandstone colors on the outside
