History

Oak Park was built in 1887 on four acres of park land that was filled with Oak trees, thus the name Oak Park Elementary. The original building was quickly outgrown. It was sold and moved to the 1100 block of Solfisburg, where it remains to this day. Construction on the central portion of the current building was started in 1923, and was dedicated and opened in November of 1924. As quoted from the December 6, 1925 Beacon News, ”….One of the most beautiful and best designed and equipped grade schools in the state, the Oak Park School. It is more than a school, it is a community center.” Additions to the three-story school building were added in 1954, 1968, and 2001.
