The Old Crawfordsville High School was a high school in Crawfordsville, Indiana. It was inducted into the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.
In 1873 the building that would come to be known as the Old Central School was constructed at this location for $44,000. The school comprised 12 rooms in three stories before an 1880 addition. The first graduating class of ten students graduated in 1877. At the first graduation the commencement address was given on the subject of women's equality by school board president Robert Krout, father of feminist authors Mary Hannah Krout and Caroline Virginia Krout who would later teach at the school.
In 1910 a new building was constructed on the same site, incorporating part of the structure of the previous building. Shortly thereafter, in 1911, the boys' basketball team won the first Indiana High School Basketball Tournament.
In 1993, classes moved to a new facility at One Athenian Drive, on State Road 47 near the city's southwest corner. The Jefferson Street school building currently houses a fitness center that incorporates the school's 1939 gymnasium, as well as some senior apartments, the city's unemployment office and other businesses.
