"The First Public Free School Building Erected in Texas."
When one considers the youth of this bustling "Gate City" of
North Texas, he is grateful for the foresight of those pioneers who
in the midst of building the town found time and money to erect
a free school building. Denison was begun in September, 1872, and
in the following year plans were made for this school.
Denison herself has been somewhat slow in appreciating the dis-
tinction that is hers, but thanks to the members of the school board
of 1905-6 she has come into her own, and through them this build-
ing has been marked by the tablet.
'The tablet was unveiled April 20, 1906, by the class of '06, and
on that occasion one of their members, Miss Pauline Everitt, gave
a history of the Washington School. It was printed in the Denison.
