    Henrietta M. King High School

    Completed in 1909, this school building originally housed all grades of the Kingsville school system. The site and funds for construction were donated by school benefactor Henrietta M. King (d. 1925), the widow of King Ranch founder Capt. Richard King. The structure reflects influences of the Alamo, Concepcion, and San Jose missions of San Antonio. Rebuilt after an interior fire in 1925 and named for Mrs. King, it remains in use as a public school.

    1914 Henrietta M. King High School
    "I have numerous photos from my grandmother, Martha L. Rogers from her childhood. Here are two of the high school. One of which is the girl's basketball team in 1914. The name of each person is written on each. My grandmother was born in 1899 in Brownsville." - Martha Rogers Ward Garbarino, October 20, 2013
