What You May Not Know About Oakwood
Oakwood has its fair share of intriguing history. It gained popularity in the early 1900s after the Great Dayton Flood, since homes in Oakwood sat above Dayton's flooded downtown. People continue to move to this suburb today, though more because of its exceptional schools, unique architecture, and convenience to Dayton rather than the elevation.
Spotlights of Oakwood
Like its neighbor Dayton, Oakwood shares in the city's aviation history. Orville Wright, one of the Wright brothers, lived at this house on the corner of Park Avenue and Harman Avenue in the early 1910s. Take a tour and experience the mansion for yourself!
