Alliance Bank in Sulphur Springs

End of the Line

Houston Elementary Construction


Work crews clean up the remaining debris at the old Houston School location on College St.  Demolition work started back in April of this year, and with rain delays and just the sheer size of the project, crews are just now down to the final stages of removal.  Once the remaining concrete slab has been removed, the remaining dirt will be smoothed out to allow grass to grow and fill in the space where so many children spent their formative years in grade school.   At last check, the official owner of the property, SSISD, does not have any firm plans on what to do with the land.  KSST News profiled the history of the property in an earlier story that can be found here:  End of Houston School   Although sad for many that attended school here, the building had exceeded it’s useful life and after a roof collapse in part of the building occupied by local chapter of Boys and Girls Club, it was just unsafe and too expensive to repair.
