Marker Text Built in 1917, this auditorium is the oldest public building still in use in Sugar Land. It was designed in the Mission Revival style by Imperial Sugar Company engineer M. R. Wood as the central structure in a crescent-shaped eleven-building school complex. A vital community asset, it has been used for cinema and stage productions, rooftop socials, graduation ceremonies, and once housed the superintendent's office downstairs and a janitor's apartment upstairs. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1992
