tivyhischool2.jpg (52419 bytes)About 1945      Tivy High School (right)  and Junior High (left) buildings.  These buildings are gone and new ones were built on the site - most recently used as the campus of B. T. Wilson Elementary School.  The original Tivy School building (behind the "Junior High" building picture above) was preserved and re-stored by a Kerrville School Committee with funds raised locally.
