FIRST SCHOOL IN TEXAS PANHANDLE

Picture of the oldest school in the Panhandle of Texas

The rock school was built in 1882 in Mobeetie. Ambitious citizens were able to raise funds to build the structure to replace a picket room with a dirt floor and no windows. The rock was used later as the foundation of a frame house that has since burned. The school at Mobeetie was used for everything; the people of the community held their Sunday School in the building and all the Sunday Schools were held together.
