Help Us Document Oakwood History!

Help Document the City of Oakwood for Future Generations

The Oakwood Historical Society is seeking volunteers for a complete record of the architecture and styles of buildings of Oakwood in 2017. Come to our booth at the Oakwood Farmers Market on Saturday, July 8, sign up to take photos of a specific block, street, or area of the city of your choosing. Or, if you are already a volunteer, come to ask questions, turn in your assignments, ask for another area, or just say "Hi!" We will be there from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. If you are interested but cannot visit us on the 8th, you can leave a message at 299-3793, or
