The Palm School is a County-owned property that holds significant historic and cultural importance, especially to Austin’s Mexican-American community. The property was a public school from 1892-1976. Most recently, it served as the Travis County Community Center at Palm Square from 1985-2020. Guided by community input, Travis County is working to redevelop the Palm School parcel in a way that maintains and balances the school’s cultural, historic, and market value.
