Subject: Old Bastrop High Building (of 1946)
Question: I recently looked at the old BHS location on Google Earth, Street View, and nothing looked familiar. Has the building that housed the HS in 1946 been demolished? - JDL
Location: San Angelo , Tx
Editor's Comment: The Bastrop High School graduation picture of 1946 was taken on the steps of the Bastrop High School building that was built in 1942. You are correct that there has been a change in its appearance because that building (at that time the Bastrop Junior High School) was almost destroyed in a big fire September 9, 1976. Damage was about $800,000. The school was rebuilt with some design changes and is now being used as Mina Elementary School; the west wing of the building is now the BISD central office. Are you the Lee from our class of ’46? I haven’t heard from any class members for a few years. Neil Gurwitz
