Just northwest of Austin, Texas, a weathering white building sits on Old Burnet Road, near the city line between Jonestown & Lago Vista… the northshore of Lake Travis & the “Gateway to the Hill Country”. Known for over a hundred years as the COX SPRINGS SCHOOL, the old structure served as a one-room schoolhouse for children of local ranchers and farmers for decades. Today it is sadly in need of repair.
Community citizens have banded together to develop a plan to save this great piece of local, Texas & American history. The group has adopted the name “Cox Springs Schoolhouse Restoration Society“. So far, they’ve secured the building, applied for historical status, have received IRS designation as an official 501-(c)(3) nonprofit entity… and undertaken engineering plans to solidify & restore the old school.
Your help is needed in funding the first step in saving the old schoolhouse.
Your help will be greatly appreciated by the community, the descendants of those who attended school in this historic building, and should give you personal pride in saving a gem of Texas and American frontier history.
