Present Day Stadium was Built in 1956

 

In 1956, a stadium was built at the present site of Irving ISD's Stadium.  The construction was controversial.  Financing for approximately $90,000 was arranged through a combination of bonds and school district funds.  Estimates soared to $131,000 but when bids came in, the low bid was $298,000.  Stadium design had to be changed to accomodate a reduction in costs.  Final estimated cost was $112,000.
