Living Green

Living Green is on Farm Road 1519 five miles southwest of Pittsburg in southwestern Camp County. The community developed around Living Green Baptist Church, a black church organized in 1875. Originally, the church building also served as a schoolhouse and was located a mile from the present church building. The community was rural and agricultural and never had a post office or any significant commercial establishments. By 1935 the school offered the first eight grades and was being administered as a part of the Oakley common school district. It served seventy-eight black children of elementary school age. By 1955 the school district had been consolidated with the Pittsburg Independent School District, and by 1983 the community comprised little more than the church and a few widely scattered houses.
