HISTORIC PRESERVATION

The original Castleberry Elementary School building was built in 1938, in the Art Deco style, expanded in 1945, and bears a Texas Historic Commission marker. After serving as an elementary school for 75 years, a new replacement building for the school was constructed and this building was renovated to become the new Administration Building. Preserving the historical character of this early 20th Century building was a primary goal. The old Cafeteria/Auditorium became the new Board Room. Classrooms were converted into offices and conference rooms. Restrooms were renovated, modernized, and upgraded to current ADA standards. Major energy improvements were made to the building envelope; for 75 years, all exterior walls had been completely uninsulated. During this renovation, all exterior walls were opened up, completely insulated, and sealed. Many walls, and all exterior walls, are poured-in-place concrete. They had been clad in plaster (with asbestos) which a hazmat team stripped, exposing the warmth and beauty of the 75-year old concrete.
