Davy Crockett School as it looks right now. DISD no longer uses the building and has no plans for future use.

The story about the Davy Crockett school has nothing to do with Crockett, Texas. I understand the school is in the Dallas area Crockett, texas is 145 miles south of Dallas. We have the Davy Crockett National Forest in Houston County. Crockett, Texas is the county seat of Houston County.

Just as a matter of information, Crockett, Texas is the fifth oldest town in the state & Houston County is the oldest incorporated county in Texas. Crockett was named in honor of Davy Crockett, who gave his life defending Texas at the Alamo.

Yeh, he drank at one of our springs!

I could be wrong but I think Topix inserts articles it thinks might create interest. Sometimes it's just a key word.

Davy Crockett was almost lynched because the citizens thought he was a horse thief. Eligah Gossett,who had served with Crockett in Washington lived in this area and came to Crockett's aid. He told them Crockett was a good friend and invited him and his fellow travelers to dine with him. After Crockett was brutally killed at the Alamo and Gossett gave the land for the townsite of Crockett, the citizens were going to name the town. Gossett, but he said no! I will name the town after my dear friend David Crockett.
Eligah Gossett also named the county after his friend "Sam Houston" Houston County was the first incorporated County in the Great State of Texas.
