Yesterday - Sunday - managed to roam some 300 miles over 8 hours in Northwestern Ohio. Made several stops visiting a few new locations, as well as returning to others.
Stopped in Oakwood, Ohio - first visited over a year ago - and found not much changed.
Now, when you say "stopped in Oakwood, Ohio" some confusion is bound to occur. You see - there are three Oakwoods in Ohio. Up near Cleveland in Cuyahoga County there is an Oakwood village. Down South near Dayton, there is an Oakwood in Montgomey County which is a city.
Nope, the Oakwood visited was in Pauling County. It is a village. Seems in Ohio various location are permitted to have the same name. Who knew?
Oakwood - in Paulding county - up to 2010 had a stable population. In 2000 it was 608 and in 2010 there were 607 people. However, the estimate for 2015 indicated only 588. This is decease of some 3.3% since 2010. What happened to cause this drop? Don't know, but interesting question.
On the main street, there is
as a tribute to the seniors over 50 years. Impressive!
A bit further along the road, reality returns.
