September. Our woodfired stove was put to work Sept. 22 by Linda Versic, long-time Oakwood resident, who put on a cooking demonstration for the historical society. Guests enjoyed tender Welsh Griddle Cakes and cinnamon raisin buns. Later in the evening Oakwood residents visited the homestead to learn about volunteering for the historical society.

Wright Memorial Library on National Register of Historic Places
February. The Wright Memorial Public Library building at 1776 Far Hills is now on the National Register of Historic Places. The Oakwood Historical Society proposed the building as it is an excellent example of a Tudor, or Jacobethan Revival style, designed by the Dayton architecture firm of Schenck and Williams. The building opened its doors on February 14, 1939. Read more about the library and Schenck and Williams.
