The National Youth Administration (NYA) project at Maverick built a community center and garage constructed of stone. The school district furnished $1,000 worth of materials and the NYA supplied $4,000 for labor and supervision. Forty-five boys were employed in the project. Only a few buildings and ruins are left of the community and the status of the center is unknown. The Texas Almanac for Runnels County historic map locates Maverick next to the Oak Creek, and Google maps shows ruins of the old school and other buildings in addition to the few remaining houses.
