1. Kohrville Community Marker
Inscription.  In the 1870s, former slaves from Alabama and Mississippi settled on Cypress Creek, near a store owned by German immigrants Paulin and Agnes Kohrmann. The Kohrville Community, centered on farming, ranching and lumber industries, offered schools for white and black students. When area schools consolidated, Kohrville became part of Klein I.S.D.; African American students attended Kohrville School. In the late 1940s, the school district financed a new school for them. An architect, probably Alfred C. Finn, designed the new schoolhouse, which was later moved to this site. The school district was desegregated in the 1960s. Kohrville and its neighboring communities now are part of the ever-growing Houston suburbs.
