Blountstown Elementary School was built in 1970. It was designed by Charles A. Gaskin, Architect, and built by Dyson Contracting, Incorporated. Before it was built, the elementary students went to school where the present day middle school sits. The cost was a little over $638,000. This site was chosen over two other land parcels, as the best suited for an elementary school.
Howard Johnson, Sr. was superintendant of schools at the time. There were about 600 students enrolled in grades kindergarten through 6th grade.
On October 10th, 2018, Hurricane Michael made landfall in Mexico Beach, Florida and traveled Northeast over Calhoun County. Blountstown Elementary School was irreparably damaged and students were separated onto two campuses; BES 1 at the original site, and BES 2 on Mainstreet. A new Blountstown Elementary School will be constructed on the original site.
