Construction on a future public school in Fort Bend County has been halted due to a shocking discovery.

It turns out there was a historic cemetery on the property where the school was supposed to be built.

Part of the James Reese Career and Technical Center construction is now an excavation site.

The Fort Bend Independent School District said it’s working with the Texas Historical Commission to make sure they are respecting history and the lives of the people buried there.

Officials do not know yet just how old the cemetery is or who is buried there.
