MUSEUM - The Oakfield
Pioneer Heritage Museum is open from 2 to 4 pm the
second and fourth Sundays from June through
September (in 2014: June 8 and 22, July 13 and
27, August 10 and 24, September 14 and 28). Besides
historical exhibits, there are many indexed
historical archives and documents of Oakfield
Township for genealogical and community heritage
research. Lots of exciting things for the adults and
kids alike to learn more of their local heritage.
“SPRING INTO THE PAST” The
Oakfield Museum participates annually in the
Tri-River Historical Museum network’s
the Past” tour of area small museums which is
held the first weekend of May from 11 am to 5 pm
each day. The Flat River Historical Museum and
the Fighting Falcon Museum, both in Greenville, are
also part of the tour as well as other museums from
Edmore to Hastings and Lake Odessa to Ada and small
towns in between. This is an opportunity to visit
many museums on the same weekend, rather than having
to find when their various visiting hours are at
other times of the year. Maps and information are
available at any of the museums on the tour or check
the Past” on commoncorners.com website.
PIONEER DAY Saturday, June 28,
2014 will be a special “Pioneer Day” to
celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Oakfield
Pioneer Heritage Society. Along with the Oakfield
Township Historical Commission, the group is
planning a variety of special activities at the
township hall to share the rich history of our
township with the community. An exciting Pancake
Breakfast by “Chris Cakes” will start off the day –
plan to come for a “flipping good time”.
