I have actually been making much headway in finding various resources for historical information on Oaklandon, unfortunately the resource I find myself short on lately has been that of time to devote to this diversion.

The DigAlthough I have not been able to share as much information - by way of posting articles - I have been doing many things behind-the-scenes that although they may not bear out the normal fruits for which I seek, they nevertheless deserve mention in the context of this blogging effort and have made it necessary for me to create a topic area here in which I might share some of my thoughts and experiences as I attempt to expand upon this repository of all things Oaklandon.

Introducing "The Dig" section of the blog. An area where I can blog about the blog. Watch this topic for some interesting content coming soon!

Oaklandon Public School

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.
