Oakland

Oakland and Oakland Station was in Section 7 of Lemon Township. It was at the intersection of Cincinnati-Dayton Road (old U. S. 25) and the former Middletown & Cincinnati Railroad (later acquired by the Pennsylvania Railroad, Conrail and now Indiana & Ohio Railway), south of Garver Road. George Crout said "over 1.2 million cans of vegetables a year were filled at Oakland Station by a canning company" founded in 1912 by William Stewart and Austin Smith. The Butler County Canning Company, which closed in 1950, packed corn, tomatoes and pumpkins labeled as "Pride of Butler" and "Star of Ohio."
