Lockney Christian College, Lockney Texas 1894 - 1918

Lockney Christian College was established by Charles Walker Smith and St. Clair W. Smith, two evangelists of the Church of Christ. The first school year began on October 2, 1894, in a frame building, with Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Burleson as the first teachers. The school opened with sixteen students and had fifty students by the end of the year. In 1902 the school was purchased by W. O. Hines, Arthur S. Kennamer, and N. L. Clark, and the name was changed to Lockney College and Bible School. The stone building pictured above was built in 1908 and the name was changed to Lockney College and Bible School. Although the school ranked with the best junior colleges in the state, the small-town location and the attraction of other colleges that lured students away contributed to its closing in 1918.
