Oakland Archive

HWO Arts and Heritage Center Logo horizontalComing soon...

The Town is building a digital database framework of Oakland's past residents and institutions from public census and municipal records. The database is starting with the three Oakland cemeteries and U.S. Census records through 1940. This database will create an archive repository for residents to share documents and photographs digitally. The goal is to make the database accessible to the public on the Center's website - online visitors will be able to navigate through the database, perform keyword searches, explore larger topics – or click on a person's name and open a pdf file with photos, documents, newspaper articles and narratives about the person's life.
