De Zavala Elementary School At 7521 Avenue H


Recommended Posts

Two Texas Historical Commission markers will be dedicated on Tuesday, October 6.

At 10:00 AM that morning, a marker will be rededicated for the Republic of Texas historic figure, Lorenzo De Zavala, at the De Zavala Elementary school, 7521 Avenue H. The attached photo shows the 41-year old marker as it remained weathered and damaged in a county warehouse for over 10 years. The marker was originally dedicated in 1968 in Channelview, three miles from the original homesite and grave of De Zavala. Magnolia Park efforts have successfully relocated, repaired and refinished the marker for unveiling on October 6.

At 6:00 PM on the same day, the Magnolia Park historical marker will be unveiled at the De Zavala Park community center.

The dedications will include the attendance of local officials and a Texas Army salute to Lorenzo De Zavala with cannons. (KABOOOM!!)
