105 Year Old 1 Room School House

by BeeCay,

Hovey Texas (see Texas Escapes Ghost Towns) is the original location of this old school house. In 1987 due to work by Margaret Newton (an alumni)and Greg McKenzie (County Commissioner) the house was moved to Fort Stockton Texas, near the site of the Old Fort. There it was rehabilitated (and continues to be cared for) by the Pecos County Historical Commission.

Please refer to this archival Fort Stockton Pioneer article, written by Barbara Kipgen for the historical background:
