OOCCL votes to support the Preservation of Rosemont Elementary
OOCCL voted unanimously at their November Board meeting to support the preservation and restoration of the exterior of the oldest segment of Rosemont Elementary.
Rosemont was built at the same time as Booker T. Washington High School, Lida Hooe Elementary and Sunset High School.
Booker T, Lida Hooe and Rosemont have identical facades. Rosemont was covered up with panels in the 1970's. The bricks can be seen behind the gutters and an official with the school says the window openings are there as well.
Paula Blackmon from DISD attended the meeting and said now that the bond has passed, discussion of Rosemont's new school will be moving forward and preservation will definitely be part of that discssion.
