TRINITY, TX (KTRE) - "Old Red" is a prairie style building that opened in Trinity in 1915. It served as a schoolhouse for 80 years.
"People remember sitting in these classrooms. People loved this building. This is one of the icons of Trinity," said Steve Jones.
This is why the community is so disappointed by a recent act of vandalism that has nearly destroyed the interior of the building. Community residents say they put a lot of money into preserving the building.
"The plan was to restore the building to where we'd have administrative offices on the first floor and have an educational museum on the top floor," said Dave Plymale, Superintendent of Schools.
