The Arcadia Publishing Company released the newest edition of Images in America this week, and it is the history of Oak Hill in photos. Pictured on the cover is a successful day of fishing along the Indian River in 1909. Mrs. Hazel Wilkinson supplied this photo of her relatives: Josephine Haughton, Louisa Haughton, Kenneth Haughton, C. Williams, Charles and Eliza Ebenbeck. Her nephew, David Brown, continues the family tradition as a successful fishing guide in the same waters his ancestors enjoyed so much.
On Saturday, April 4, an open house publication celebration will take place at Oak Hill City Hall, and you will be able to purchase the book (on that day only) for $20. All area residents are invited to stop by any time between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to meet many of those who contributed to this collection of historical photos that tell Oak Hillís story from the 1880s until the 1970s. There will be some stories to go along with the photos that are not written in the book, so plan to stop by and enjoy this walk back in time. Refreshments will be served by The Community Trust, and all proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to this organization.
