For a taste of some real 19th century history, you should definitely go to the Historic Oakwood district which is the only remaining, intact area that dates back to the 19th century. Beautiful and amazing old houses, well-kept gardens and friendly residents make the place worth visiting. There are annual programs, tours, and other special events organized throughout the year and taking part in them you will feel a little bit more alive and knowledgeable of another way of life.

Don't miss a visit to the district, I'm sure you will love it!
