The Oakland Township Historic District Commission Is Hosting a Contest for Historic Door Images

The contest deadline is July 31. Submissions can be sent to bbarber@oaklandtownship.org with the subject “Historic Door Contest” and include the photographers name, the location of the door and the type of building in the email. Please submit images in JPG or PNG file format. Up to six images can submitted.

The contest goal is to promote and bring awareness to the importance of preservation in the township. History is all around us and should be displayed whenever we have the chance. The Historic District Commission hopes that this contest will make people aware of the precious history and memories available to them in their own community.

Historic doors symbolize both an entrance and an exit. The Historic District Commission believes that we can and should revisit the significance of our past to inform our direction in the future. Preservation is one of the many ways to do that, and is one of the main goals of the Commission.

Cranberry Lake Farm will also be hosting several events/programs for anyone interested in educational fun. More information about these upcoming programs can be found on the Cranberry Lake Farm Facebook page.
