A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Oakwood ...
Although we found mention of Oakwood during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Oakwood was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Oakwood was located in Polk County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Oakwood to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Oakwood - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Oakwood, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Oakwood might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
