Inscription
When Texas was readmitted to the Union in 1870, the land in this area was owned by three families, including that of nationally known political statesman Edward Mandell House. Known as Stringtown, the area was so well populated by 1893 that House donated an acre of land for a school. Settlers pooled their funds for a building, naming the school and community Monadale in honor of House's daughter. A clerical error led to the common spelling Monodale. The people of Monodale community were cotton farmers, chiefly Swedish and Czechoslovakian immigrants. The Monodale School District served the area's children until it was consolidated with Hutto in 1949.
