Ron Jones removes a support beam from underneath a one-room African-American schoolhouse near Okay on Wednesday as a trailer is backed in to haul it to Three Rivers Museum’s grounds at Third and Elgin streets on Saturday. Several museum volunteers showed up to help with the move of the historic Oak Grove Separate School, which will be placed behind the museum. Plans are for the building to arrive at 10:30 a.m. The museum plans to raise money to renovate the structure and add furniture authentic to the period. Anyone who remembers the school is invited to call the museum at (918) 686-6624 to share memories.
