Historical Marker
    Children of the Sardis Community attended school in the Methodist church building from the early 1870s until a small two-room schoolhouse was constructed near this site in 1897. By 1915 the school population had grown such that a larger facility was needed. Over the years, the Sardis School system served as a source of leadership for the community. As the population dwindled and school bus service became available, consolidation with the Waxahachie school district began in 1937 and was completed in 1952. The c. 1915 schoolhouse remains in use as a community center.
