“Most people don’t think their stories are important, but someday we’re all going to look back on this, and it will be interesting to read people’s accounts.”
Tiffany Rubin, President
Oakwood Historical Society
Document History As It Happens
We are collectively experiencing an unprecedented time in history, and the Oakwood Historical Society wants to capture your stories about how it changed your life. We want your writings, drawings, photographs, videos, and more…whatever you want to send us. We have become a new chapter in Oakwood’s rich history. Share your stories, and the Society will preserve them. Act now. Make history with us.

Support Oakwood Students Capturing COVID-19 History
Your stories are worth preserving. The Society will need help archiving at the very time college students will be looking for summer employment in a depressed economy. Contributing to this fund enables the Society to provide employment opportunities for students to work on the project under the supervision of the Oakwood Historical Society to archive what we are all experiencing.

Every $1500 funds six weeks of part-time work for one student. No amount contributed is too small, and donations are fully tax-deductible. Every dollar donated provides meaningful work opportunities and helps preserve Oakwood history.
