Camps Normal Industrial Institute

Between 1918 and 1940 a group of men worked together to create a boarding school and basic educaiton facility in Gregg County. They called it Camps Normal Industrial Institute. There is a great deal of information related to thier effort but little evidence that the institute was ever built.

There is infomation from Fisk University on a smaller Camp Switch Rosenwald school that may have built on the Camp Normal sight. In addition there is information on the project to build a boarding school being changed to the Camp Normal Hospital in Longview, TX.

The documents and artifacts that support this project will be posted on this page as they are discovered.
