1. Ola Schoolhouse Marker
Inscription. Prior to the 1950s, the "one room schoolhouse" was a standard feature in rural America. All students, regardless of age or grade, were frequently taught in one large classroom. This building served as the Ola Elementary School on Snapping Shoals Road in the 1940s. In the early 1950s, it was moved behind Sharon Baptist Church on North Ola Road and used for Sunday school classes until being moved to Heritage Park in 2003.
