better days were in the past
There’s almost nothing left here, and what is left has a good chance of having been burned, like the old school.
But back in the day, some interesting things went on here:
In 1942 Pyote Air Force Station was constructed at Pyote south of Highway 80 on land owned by the University of Texas; it was used for bomber training. After World War II more than 4,000 bombers and fighter planes were sent to the Pyote base for melting into scrap metal. Among those stored there were the Enola Gay, which dropped the first atomic bomb, and Swoose, General MacArthur’s plane. However, those two famous planes were rescued from destruction by the Smithsonian Institution. (Texas State Historical Association)
