Oakland – Cloverdale Township

Oakland was a stop on the L. N. A. & C. Railroad at the north end of Section 16 of Township 12N Range 3W, about three miles southeast of Cloverdale. I did not find much in researching this community, which appeared to have been near School No. 11 and contained a sawmill at one time. There was enough interest in the place that the newspapers had just a few instances of “news from Oakland” and there were a few other newspaper items that mention the community, but not many. If anyone knows more about this place, feel free to add to this information.
