History / Biographical
This school section, which is located in the northwest corner of the town-ship, was the home of the first white settler in Elgin County. In 1796 James Fleming settled on Lot 6, Concession 1 near the Thames River. However no other settlers came to this area until after the war of 1812 and it was not extensively settled until the 1840's. The first school was not built until 1852 when a small log building was erected on Lot 5, Concession 1, on what was commonly referred to as the "Martin Knoll". The first teacher of this small school was Mr. John McColl. In 1864 a larger school was built as a replacement on Lot 4, Concession 2. An impressive two-storey school was built in 1890 which came to be known as "Oak Grove" because of the many oak trees which surrounded the knoll it was built on. This school had two classrooms which were both continuously used except for a short period in the 1940's when only one classroom was needed. S.S. #10 was closed in June of 1965, after which the students were bused to the new Aldborough Public School.
Scope and Content
Two black and white photographs of students at Oak Grove School S.S. #10 [63a], and the exterior of the school [63b], in 1891, included in the Clachan Women's Institute Tweedsmuir History, Volume One, page 63.

History / Biographical
This school section, which is located in the northwest corner of the town-ship, was the home of the first white settler in Elgin County. In 1796 James Fleming settled on Lot 6, Concession 1 near the Thames River. However no other settlers came to this area until after the war of 1812 and it was not extensively settled until the 1840's. The first school was not built until 1852 when a small log building was erected on Lot 5, Concession 1, on what was commonly referred to as the "Martin Knoll". The first teacher of this small school was Mr. John McColl. In 1864 a larger school was built as a replacement on Lot 4, Concession 2. An impressive two-storey school was built in 1890 which came to be known as "Oak Grove" because of the many oak trees which surrounded the knoll it was built on. This school had two classrooms which were both continuously used except for a short period in the 1940's when only one classroom was needed. S.S. #10 was closed in June of 1965, after which the students were bused to the new Aldborough Public School.
