Oakland Normal Institute
It provided a classical education in art and Latin, as well as education and business courses. The school was established in 1887, and remained open until 1904, when it became a county school. The original two-story building was torn down in the 1930s, and a one-story building was erected using much of the older building. The Oakland School, serving grades 1 through 8, was closed in 1954. In the 1950s a historic marker was erected at the school site, by former alumni of the Oakland Normal Institute. The Oakland School building was renovated in 2004 and is now a Mississippi Historical Landmark.
