Early Oatmeal School

Early Oatmeal School

Bertram br/Burnet County, Texas br/30 41.782' N 98 05.145' W br/br/Text: This building, once a combined school and church, was erected in 1869 in Oatmeal, second oldest community in Burnet County. The settlement, founded in 1849, had a post office from 1853 to 1876. This limestone structure was successor to the first school of 1858. Excepting minor repairs and addition of a board floor, building looks much as it did in 1869. It is a church today. A third school, built in 1924, now houses a community center.
