In the early history of this area and before Oakdale became a town with its own post office, the residents here resided in Camp Washington. A search for the location of this site would lead you to Chinese Camp as it was the post office headquarters for this large Enumeration District. So 150 years later the connection is re-kindled ...

Mark was a true Valley Home boy who grew up to be one of the kindest and most generous friends a person could wish for. One could write pages and pages trying to describe the effect Mark had on the people of Valley Home, Oakdale, and the many places he visited. He was a special man who made a difference in so many lives. You could meet Mark one time and realize he would forever be your friend. He had a firm, but ...
