Flagg Grove School (or Flaggs' Grove School) was a school south of Nutbush in Haywood County, Tennessee, now part of Brownsville.

The school was established in the late 19th century.

History[edit]

An area of 1-acre (4,000 m2) of land for the school was sold to the school trustees for $25 in 1889 by Benjamin B. Flagg who was the older brother of singer Tina Turner's great grandfather, George Flagg. This was approximately one third the going rate for land at the time in Tennessee.

Singer Tina Turner attended Flagg Grove Elementary School in the 1940s.[1][2]
