Oakland, Oregon -- DSC02115
On the maindrag of downtown Oakland a block and a half north of historic U.S. Highway 99 in Douglas County, Oregon. Oakland dates back to 1851 and is listed on the NRHP (#79002058) as a historic district. Like many towns in the area it has been hit hard by the rapid decline in the lumber and logging industry. But it now lives on as a historic site and offers a great place for retirees seeking a quaint, quiet and affordable place to retire to.
