The Door on the left of the building was where the mail boxes were at and you went through that door to get your mail. The other door was the entrance of the store. I have some very fond memories of this place in the late forties and early fifties.

    The Berrien County, Georgia Historical Foundation has recently been researching some of the history of Oakfield. We have been searching for black families who may be familiar with some of the other black families that resided in the Oakfield community, especially the Lewis family.

  3. I used to live just up the road, in Warwick. Driving through Oakfield many times, I wondered what the town was like when it was more populous. There are many other towns like this in southern Georgia, places that have withered, not that they ever had certain amenities that I, who am best suited to college towns, prefer. Yet the death of a town does make me sad.
