Oakwood is a charming little town located in the Leon and Freestone counties of Texas. Founded in 1872 as a stop on the International Railroad, Oakwood has kept up its small-town status all the way until today, boasting a population of only about 500 during the 2010 census.
A small town like Oakwood comes with a whole lot of small-town charisma, not to mention a tightly-knit community where everyone knows everyone.
Of course, being such a small town can limit the options you have for a night out. That said, there are plenty of fantastic places to visit in and around the town of Oakwood, TX.
