History in a Pecan Shell

Not exactly a town, Trio was actually a consolidated school and the residences that surrounded it. The photos here are of the former school.

Trio Schoolhouse

The wood frame Live Oak School was moved to this site in 1907 and in 1915, students from two other schools (Hackberry and Prairie View) started attending classes. Rather than have a three-way fight over a name, a compromise was reached with the charmless utilitarian name of Trio.

The merger required a new building and so the brick two-story building was constructed. Grades one through ten were taught in four classrooms while the former frame school became a teacherage.

The Trio school was merged with the Sabinal ISD in the late 1940s and the brick school fell into private hands where it was used for storing hay.

Locals say that the building is haunted - and that on occasion, the sounds of children playing can be heard on the wind.

Photographer's note:
This is the shell of the old Trio school in eastern Uvalde County near Sabinal. The community seemed to have revolved around the school. The building has burned, apparently in the past few years. I suspect, based on satellite images, that it burned between 1990-96. No cornerstone could be found..... There is nothing else left of the community. - Stephen K. Taylor, January 09, 2006
