The Hartnett Elementary School and Negro Playing Field Sign is Up

Hooray! The Hartnett Elementary School and Negro Playing field sign is finally installed. Go check it out at 1401 Bridges St in Oakland City/Bush Mountain. It took a year of collaboration and patience, but we were able to mark this hidden corner of the neighborhood with a historical sign. Look out for a mini celebration in the future.

Home on Peeples Street Sells for $115,000

This is encouraging, as that street has been a trouble spot for too long.

“With shoutouts to both Santa and Festivus, the listing for this unfinished but dirt-cheap property ($115,000) stresses the potential of not just the house, but the Oakland City neighborhood at large.” Josh Green.

OCCO Holiday Home Party Tour December 2016

Hey Oakland City neighbors, we tried something new for the holidays year and had the OCCO Holiday Party at three homes instead of in one location. We apologized if we missed you this yer. We tried to invite all the neighbors who had provided emails on our meeting sign-in sheets this year. We called it the OCCO Holiday Home Party Tour. We visited three homes-1 for Appetizers, 1 for Entrees, and 1 for Desserts. Some of my nephews and a niece helped host and serve.
I hope we can do it again next year on a larger scale or at least at different homes.
