1. Mathews School Marker
Inscription. In 1916, the Austin School District built three elementary schools, including two identical ones: Metz on the east side of town and Mathews on the west. Architect Dennis R. Walsh designed both schools, but only Mathews remains in use. Named for Dr. William J. Mathews, a physician and original school board member, the building has several additions, including a 1930s renovation by the firm of Giesecke and Harris. The central fašade remains intact, with symmetrical composition reflecting a simplified classical style. Features include squared brick pilasters and a pedimented entry.
