Facts

  • The building's cupola still exists today and can be visited at the Zilker Bontanical Gardens at Zilker Park. Today it is a popular site for weddings in the grounds of the gardens.
  • Today the Bickler Building site is occupied by the Sheraton Austin Hotel.
  • In 1937 the school was converted into a facility for children with special learning needs. In 1947 it was later used as an administration building for the school district.
  • In 1902 the school was renamed after Jacob Bickler, an Austin schoolteacher who died that year.
  • With the construction of I-35 built on what was then East Avenue, the building became an unpopular place for a school and was later turned into school district offices; when the school district moved out of the building it ultimately had become obsolete and was demolished in 1968.
