The first settlers in this rich farm and ranch land arrived in the 1850s. Oakalla Post Office was established May 19, 1879. Schools were private until a cooperative was built which provided classrooms on the second floor. Oakalla boasted a doctor, drugstore, blacksmith shop, and a cotton gin by 1881. The two-acre school site was deeded in 1890. Worship was held in the schoolhouse and in brush arbors until 1908 when Oakalla Baptist Church erected a meetinghouse. The school consolidated in 1958 with Lampasas and the building became a community center.
