A Circa Guide to Oakland


Oakland, arguably one of St. Louis County’s best-kept secrets, is a small city of approximately 1550  residents.  Its 7.5 miles of tree-lined streets are nestled between Webster Groves to its east, Crestwood to its south, Kirkwood to its west, and Glendale to its north.
Oakland is a community of great architectural diversity. Not only will you find homes designed by such modern-day architects such as Harris Armstrong, Robert Schutt and Paul Marti (all of whom are current or former Oakland residents), but  you will also find post World War II "kit" homes, turn of the century stately manors and arts and crafts-styled cottages.  A number of homes were built in Oakland just before the Civil War, when wealthy St. Louisians began to build summer homes as retreats from the city heat.
