Historic Oak Grove School

Around 1870 the Moravian Church in Bethania sold land to George and Thomas Washington, both freed slaves, who helped build Washington Town, now known as the Oak Grove community. The Washington family donated land on which a one-room schoolhouse, Oak Grove School, was built around 1910. The historical and social importance of this event is that it was built in one of North Carolina's first communities settled by freed slaves.
