Closer to home, Oakfield has a wonderful school system and library, as well as several churches and community groups, which all work together to preserve “small town” America!
Oakfield is currently working on Water Districts 3-11, with WD3 in it’s final funding stages. The Board is hopeful that with-in the next 7-10 years everyone in the Town will have public water.
For the outdoorsman, located only minutes outside of Oakfield, are the Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge, Oak Orchard Wildlife Management Area and the Tonawanda Wildlife Area, all of which constitute the Alabama Swamp Complex.
This refuge comprises 10,818 acres and is managed by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service in Genesee and Orleans Counties. The refuge has several large pools (some separated by dikes), swamps, meadows, fields, and woodlands. Some areas are closed to protect the introduction of the bald eagle or to preserve wildlife. This is an amazing attraction, practically in a resident’s backyard, to take in nature at its tranquil best. Hunting, fishing and trapping, when in season, are permitted.
