ACC Bond Projects: Elgin Campus

OPENED FEBRUARY 2018

ACC’s Elgin Campus is the first college campus in Bastrop County. It enrolls hundreds of students in Early College High School, transferable core curriculum courses, and college-readiness classes.

In addition to space for washing and handling crops, the outbuilding will house a tractor maintenance workshop and include covered pens for large animals, treatment stocks and a cattle chute, and areas to store hay, animal feed, and farm implements.
