A public school system was established in Palestine in 1881 and first classes were held at the Old Palestine Female Institute in1858. In 1915 a vote was passed for a new High School and an area within Reagan Park was chosen for this purpose. Included in the structure was a library, gymnasium, laboratories, 8 lecture rooms and an auditorium.

The building became a junior high school in 1939 and was named in 1955 for John Reagan a Palestine resident and Texas Stateman. Elementary grades were assigned here from 1966 to 1976 when the school finally closed. The building was then preserved and rehabilitated as a museum and cultural centre.
