David Crockett Memorial Building was located in the Davy Crockett Park, Crockett, TX.

The Texas Centennial, marking 100 years of Texas independence, was officially celebrated in 1936.  The Commission of Control worked with the Advisory Board of Texas Historians, the Work Projects Administration, and the Texas Highway Department to coordinate programs and to provide permanence to the centennial observance by the erection of permanent buildings, monuments, statues, and grave markers. Every county in the state received a marker indicating the date of its establishment and the source of its name. Permanent buildings that received financial assistance from the Commission of Control included the David Crockett Memorial Building at Crockett.


Memorial Building at right.  Looking at the reflection pool in front of the building.  It had large goldfish in it ... in the left background was the caretakers house.  A family lived there and the husband was in charge of upkeep for the Park.
