Doyle - Did you know?

Do you know why the street signs in the Doyle Community District are purple? Purple and white were the school colors for the Doyle Dragons which was the sports team for the Doyle School.

The Doyle School in Kerrville, Texas, began as an African American school in 1909. The local African American community raised $53 to move the frame building of the former school for white students, which was no longer needed after a new school was built. Anna W. Doyle, a longtime educator who would serve as the head teacher at the Doyle School for nearly two decades, donated the land upon which the relocated building was sited.

The one-room school had no utilities until running water was installed in 1920 and electric lights were installed in 1923. The African American population in Kerrville was small and only 25 students from five north Kerrville families attended. The present school building was built in 1930. Throughout the years, the school expanded to include three classrooms, an auditorium, two bathrooms, and a storage area. As enrollment grew—to about 75 students by 1940—educational and extracurricular opportunities were added, including athletic teams, cheerleaders, a choir, and a marching band. In addition to teaching traditional academic subjects, the Doyle School offered classes in theater, music, and home economics, providing further educational enrichment.

The Doyle purple street signs extend from Schreiner Street to Holdsworth and from Clay Street to Town Creek Rd.
