Texas Historical Marker unveiled for Washington High School
A Texas Historical Marker for Washington High School in Groesbeck was unveiled in a ceremony on Saturday, Sept. 16. The school was built in 1957 for African-American students in Groesbeck ISD. After integration, the school became Groesbeck Junior High and served that purpose until 1989. It then became Enge-Washington Intermediate School and was named for the two principals of Washington High School, Nelson Washington and Elwood Enge. A new intermediate school was completed in 2011, and most of the old school was demolished in 2018.
