The Historic Oak Grove School – A perfect location for special events!

Historic Oak Grove School, located at 2637 Oak Grove Circle in Winston-Salem, was built in 1908 to educate black students in the surrounding communities.  This one room school house now serves as a museum exhibiting the furniture, fixtures and education related items found in the old school house, and is a charming location for meetings and small events.

Oak Grove School was built in 1910 and is significant for its association with African-American history and education in Forsyth County. The School served local African-American children living in the Washington Town community near Bethania from c.1910-1950. During the 1910s, over 80% of North Carolina’s African-American students attended school in one of 1,934 one-room schools.

Oak Grove is the only known extant example of Forsyth County’s once common, one-room African- American schoolhouse, and is the sole link to Washington Town’s thriving community at the turn of the 20th century. Inside Oak Grove’s one original room, beaded board sheathes the walls and ceilings. A small display of desks and teaching materials is featured in the room along with historical photos and information about the school and its former students and teachers.
