Jim Morrison of the band "The Doors" went to a Kingsville Grade school? These awesome tiles leading up this building belong to the Charles H. Flato Elementary School in Kingsville, Texas... The same school that Jim Morrison completed 3rd grade in. I took this photo back in 2009
The year, 1952: The Morrison's moved from Fairfax County, Virginia to Kingsville, Texas. Jim had finished the 3rd grade and was about to start the 4th grade there. Jim attended Charles H. Flato Elementary School in Kingsville, located on West Santa Gertrudis Avenue, a street named after cattle developed by the famed King Ranch. If you pass by the school's address heading west, you will enter the ranch's Santa Gertrudis division's main gate.
