Historic Chestnut Grove School
Chestnut Grove School (2018)
Built in 1896, the Historic Chestnut Grove School is the only surviving restored example of a one-room schoolhouse for Black children in Clarke County, and one of the few such schools remaining in Georgia. It is nestled in a grove of trees at 601 Epps Bridge Road between Chestnut Grove Baptist Church and a small cemetery that contains the graves of individuals born into slavery.
