Harman School Community Center

Pidcokebr/ Coryell County, Texasbr/ 31 16.954' N 97 59.313' Wbr/ Directions: Start at the intersection of Harman Road and Table Rock Road. Go .9 miles west on Harman Road. The building is on the right (north) side of the br/ Text: In 1891, M.F. Harman deeded two acres to be used for a school and gathering place until the community, known as Harman Community, moved it in 1904 to Henry Wood's pasture, near Perryman Creek. In 1917-18, on four acres bought from Milton L. and Mary Lou Harman for $200, a new facility was built here, with three classrooms, offices and a stage. A teacherage was added in 1921. Over the years, the schoolhouse served Boy Scouts, a home demonstration club and even a rat killing club. After consolidating with Gatesville schools in 1948, the former schoolhouse remained a community center, owned and maintained by local trustees and used for special events, reunions and festivals.
