Turkey's school system acquired this land in 1928 for a $100,000 high school. Amarillo architect E.F. Rittenberry designed a brick structure with English Gothic details. Consolidation with several area schools caused an enrollment of 445 students in 1928, accommodated by eight classrooms, a gymnasium, and an auditorium. Classes ended in 1973 after consolidation of Quitaque schools. The Turkey High School building was preserved as a center for the community offices and events.
