Inscription.  

Revolutionary War soldiers John Beard, Henry W. Davis, John Mayberry, James Potts, and Thomas Prowell established homesteads and reared large families on Lick Creek. By 1811 Hugh Fox, Thomas and Sampson Prowell, and James Thompson had migrated from Burke County, N.C. Other early families to settle here were Beasley, Church, Edwards, Harris, Hay, Parham, Sears, Wakefield, and Warf. By 1831 regular Methodist camp meetings were held nearby. On April 29, 1909, the church, a school, Thompson's store, and much timber were destroyed by a cyclone. The present church was built in 1924 and the school, which closed in 1954, was built in 1929. White Oak Post Office served the area from 1876 until 1907.
 
Erected 1998 by Greenbrier Community Club and Williamson County Historical Society.
