The Temple Historic Preservation Committee will hold a reception honoring Jefferson Elementary as the latest recipient of a Temple Historic Organizational Marker. The reception will be held on Thursday, March 26th at 2:00 p.m., at the Jefferson School building located at 2616 N 3rd St, Temple Texas.
The original Jefferson building was partially funded by federal grant in 1954. Jefferson Elementary was rebuilt and open in fall of 2013 to keep up with the community growth.
The Temple Historic Marker program was designed to recognize historically significant structures and organizations in the city while encouraging preservation and restoration. For a property or organization to be considered for a historic marker, the property owner must apply with supporting documentation to the Historic Preservation Committee.
Anyone interested in learning more about TISD or the Temple Historic Marker Program is encouraged to attend the ceremony.
