The 1923 West Dallas school, famous as the elementary school where outlaw Bonnie Parker attended, could be coming into a new era.

The city initiated efforts last year to make the Eagle Ford School a Dallas historic landmark because of its significance as a last remnant of Cement City and the Eagle Ford community. That move prevented the building, which was on the market, from being torn down for about three years while its case is under review.

Meanwhile, an investor, Larry Moser, bought it.

Moser has plans to restore the building’s facades, expose bricked-in windows, replace windows and doors and add a paved parking lot. The interior will be renovated as an office space.

“We will bring this building back to a good condition for another hundred years,” Moser told the Dallas Landmark Commission this week.
