In 1936, the Valera, Bowen, White Chapel and New Central communities established a common high school. The new centralized campus - the second rural high school in Coleman County - was named to commemorate Texas' centennial of independence celebrated that year. After the original frame school burned in 1940, Federal grants from the Works Progress Administration helped build a new schoolhouse, gymnasium and teacherage. Consolidation created the Talpa-Centennial District in 1958 and then Panther Creek in 1986, with this campus serving as an elementary school. After a new Panther Creek school opened near Voss in 1988, this site became a cooperative alternative school and later a recreational lodge.
