Oak Grove School was constructed ca. 1910 and served nearby African-American children from ca. 1910-1950. Tradition maintains that Oak Grove's construction was made possible through the donation of the site by a local African-American family, the assistance of a local church, contribution in money and labor of the population the school would serve, and assistance from Forsyth County. Oak Grove School is the only known example of Forsyth County's once common, one-room, African-American schoolhouse. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.
