OAK GROVE, TX (NAVARRO COUNTY)

OAK GROVE, TEXAS (Navarro County). Oak Grove, a farming community two miles northeast of Kerens in eastern Navarro County, was established before 1900. A school there had an enrollment of sixty-nine in 1906. During the mid-1930s the community had a church, a school, a cemetery, and a number of houses. After World War II its school was consolidated with the Kerens school, and by the mid-1960s only a church, a cemetery, and a few widely scattered houses remained. In the early 1990s Oak Grove was a dispersed rural community.
