LOCATION: Oatmeal is on Farm Road 243 eight miles southeast of Burnet in southeast Burnet County.

This building, once a combined school and church, was erected in 1869 in Oatmeal, second oldest community in Burnet County. The settlement, founded in 1849, had a post office from 1853-1876. This limestone structure was successor to the first school of 1850. Excepting minor repairs and additions of a board floor, building looks much as it did in 1869. It is a church today. A third school build in 1924 now houses a community center.. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark -1968.
