CIVILIZATION has been at work in our area for one hundred and fifty years now. During this time, many were born, strived and died. It has fallen on us to set down a record to preserve Oakford's history, to honor the memory of our pioneers and to mark the beginning of another one hundred years. We present to you and posterity, along with our apologies for any errors or omissions, Oakford's story -- THEY LEFT THEIR MARK.
