1. Oakdale School Marker
Inscription. Built by Oakdale Mill and served by teachers from the county, this one-room schoolhouse operated until 1943 when it merged with the Jamestown School. The front sections on either side of the door provided separate boys' and girls' cloakrooms as well as storage for lunches and fuel for the pot-bellied stove. The school also functioned as a neighborhood social center and meeting place.
 
Erected by Historic Jamestown Society.
