State of Oregon - Oakland, Douglas County

Oakland, Douglas County, PO 18 miles north of Roseburg, was built in 1872 as the terminus of the Oregon and California Railroad, 181 miles from Portland. Previously the town had occupied a position upon a steep hillside, but upon the completion of the railroad the present site was chosen, on the bank of the Calapooia River, a romantic and favorable location. The town, although new, contains over forty good and substantial structures, and a population of about two hundred. A public school is well attended, and Masonic and Odd Fellows Lodges are maintained. One newspaper, the Umpqua Call, is published weekly.
