Long Description:
NRHP Nomination Form

"Lockhart Vocational High School (LVH), built in 1923, is located in the Byrd Lockhart Addition in the city of Lockhart in Caldwell County. The building is situated in a residential area. However, the private homes that once stood on the various lots immediately surrounding the school property have all been razed. The building is the last remaining of two six-teacher type Rosenwald schools built in Texas in 1923. The other six-teacher Rosenwald located in Limestone County, burned in the 1980s. The 2-story, stucco building contains six classrooms, a principal's office, and an auditorium that spans the width of the building. The building is oriented toward the north with windows receiving light from the east and west.

The school is a 2-story, 3762-sq. ft. utilitarian building that is typical of the 2-story Rosenwald schools built in Texas and throughout the South. The stucco covered brick building has a pier and beam foundation. The unadorned principal facade, which faces north, has strong vertical brick and stucco pilaster-like columns that emerge about two feet over the parapet. The pilaster like columns, which stand on either side of the portico, create a central area that contains various size windows. The upper level at one time had a pediment centered on the parapet between the two pilaster-Uke columns. The lower level has a centrally located portico with double-front doors that divide the principal facade. The stucco-covered brick columns that support the porch roof rest upon a pier of bricks, which are also covered in stucco."
