Killeen City Hall

Project Name: Killeen City Hall

Project Location: Killeen, Texas

Project Type: National Register Nomination for Killeen High School

Owner: City of Killeen

Hicks & Company architectural historians completed a National Register of Historic Places nomination for the original Killeen High School. Built in 1923, the school served all grades until World War II when Killeen’s population exploded with the establishment of Fort Hood and additional schools were built. After being decommissioned by the school district, Killeen’s oldest extant school building was rehabilitated in 1993 and now serves as Killeen’s City Hall. The nomination package was funded by a Certified Local Government grant through the Texas Historical Commission. The property was officially listed in the National Register in May 2015. Project tasks included background and archival research, the development of a historic context focusing on education in Killeen, a detailed architectural description, National Register eligibility recommendations, and photographic documentation.
