The blog peeks in the window...
of the one room schoolhouse in the Oak Grove section of Winston-Salem, where the blog walked on the Sunday evening before Labor Day. The Winston-Salem Foundation supported the restoration - one of the board members is a former student at the school. His comment pretty much tells the story: "If you learned a little something, you wouldn't be a tenant farmer." Jon was chagrined that he had lived in an apartment nearby and never previously known of the school's existence, but at the time he lived nearby it was clearly just another shack...unfortunately the domain name for www.historicoakgrovesc expired on 08/08/2009 and is pending renewal or deletion, so the blog was stumped in its quest for historic photographs...The building was restored by the Rural Initiative Project, Inc., and deeded to the Forsyth County YWCA when completed.
