East Texas Alamo-like school building demolished

BULLARD, Texas (AP) - An East Texas school building designed to look like the Alamo has had its last stand.

Bullard Independent School District Superintendent Keith Bryant says the building has fallen into disrepair and is being demolished this week.

Bryant says the former classrooms structure, recently used as storage, will be torn down to make way for better roads leading to Bullard Intermediate School.

The Tyler Morning Telegraph reports residents of Bullard, located 100 miles southeast of Dallas, are invited to take some of the rubble as mementos.

The building was constructed in the mid-1930s as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration.

Bullard officials are considering revamping town entryway signs to acknowledge the building designed in the image of the Alamo in San Antonio.
