History of Oakwood
At the beginning of the 20th century Oakwood was an area most notable for farmland directly south of downtown Dayton. The year 1913 brought a disastrous flood into the city of Dayton which many people refer to as The Great Dayton Flood. During this time land in Oakwood became desirable as Oakwood was situated on a hill at a higher elevation than many areas of Dayton. With a more desirable elevation and a very close proximity to downtown Dayton many people began to move into Oakwood.
One of Oakwood's most notable residents is Orville Wright who lived at Hawthorne Hill which is located at the corner of Harmon and Park Avenue's. Oakwood has long been known as a place for prominent figures in the Dayton area to reside full of quiet suburban atmosphere with mostly tree line streets.
