Oak Hall School

The Oak Hall school house was located on the old Ford's Ferry Road about six miles from Marion.  

The school was made up of pupils from part of old Forest Grove district and part from Heath School.  Everyone walked to school, in summer or winter.  In the winter months the only heat was from a potbellied stove.  It was never very warm.  The water came from a cistern.

Two boys in front, Vervil Shewmaker and Gene Graves.

The school closed in the 1940's and the students were transported to other schools.
