Oakland, Illinois & Map

What to Expect
You might not expect a community nestled in the corn fields of Central Illinois to be rich in historical significance. Welcome to Oakland, where you're sure to experience the unexpected! Here, past and present converge in a delightful environment. Visit our historical landmarks, then take a leisurely stroll down the brick streets of our tree-lined square where you will find unique architecture and a potpourri of local businesses.

Oakland also offers a variety of recreational opportunities such as swimming, camping, fishing, sporting clays, and golfing. Walnut Point State Park, just three miles north of town, has a lake, trails and campgrounds.


Oakland is located on State Route 133, about forty miles from the Indiana state line.  It is fifteen miles from the Arcola-Paris exit, 203 East, on I-57.  Start your visit to Trial & Tribulations at State Route 133 and Pike Street in Oakland at the Dr. Rutherford Home Complex indicated on the map here near the bottom.  The pointer at the top is for Independence Pioneer Village, 1/2 mile north of town where more activities for Trial & Tribulations will be held.  The dinner theater is at the Oakland United Methodist Church at 13 E. Washington St.
