Oaklandon Public School Building

Oaklandon's School

Considered one of the finest of the day, this early school was on the outskirts of the present Oaklandon (then called Oakland). Note the two front doors of the imposing brick structure: one door was used by the boys, and the other by the girls. This school was erected in about 1882 according to reliable sources.

Oaklandon High School

Riding to Oaklandon in "The Good Ole Days" wasn't all fun, for the traveler had to pay 10 cents to travel on Pendleton Pike from Post Road to Oaklandon. Note that the muddy road in front of Oaklandon High School is now four-laned and paved.
