Reagan, Texas was a roadroad town, laid out in 1873 on a tract of land donated by Judge William Reason Reagan, who donated land for the town in 1873 just after the Waco and Northwestern Railroad completed the section of track between Bremond and Ross.|
The main street of town was actually called Railroad Street and lay between the railroad tracts and the business district of Reagan.
Most of the commercial buildings of Reagan (and the Reagan School) were made of antique red brick, had covered wooden sidewalks and must have been very impressive in its hayday.
The first stores in the 1870's were owned by Sam and Andrew Peyton, Captain Johnson and Dr. McDowell had a drug store. Some of the early Reagan families included the Harpers, Robbins families, Fountains, [Boyles?], McCoys, Cottons, Rankins, Hayes, Hagens, Rogers, Guffys, Davidsons, and J. E. Davis family.
The Reagan School Campus with it's adjoining acreage was akin to a college campus layout with huge two-story main building and a row of wooden structures that functioned as additional classrooms and of course, the Gymnasium that was a multi-functional building from Basketball court, Halloween carnival site, volleyball court, theatre stage, roller rink, travelling trade shows, musical shows, and even a Donkey Basketball Court.
By the mid 1920's, Reagan school had a strong sports department, music department and even theatre.
This section is still under construction. Plan to fill in with lots of old photos and family sories about the great people that lived in Reagan.
