OAK GROVE, TEXAS (Colorado County). Oak Grove is located at the junction of County roads 210 and 211 about nine miles southwest of Columbus in western Colorado County. The area had its own community school district in the early 1900s, and the Oak Grove School operated from 1897 to 1924. Teachers through the years included J. W. Holt and Beatrice Obenhaus. No population statistics were available throughout most of the twentieth century, but the community was shown on highway maps in the 1980s. In 2000 Oak Grove had a population of 40.
