Oakland Township

Oakland Town Hall is located at 27441 State Route 92, Susquehanna, PA 18847; phone: 570-853-4557. The Susquehanna River descends into Oakland from New York State and flows into Great Bend Township, from where it re-enters New York.

Beginnings [1]

The settlement of the last township of Susquehanna County was nearly coeval with that of the first, of which, in fact, it formed a part until the erection of Harmony. It was separated from the latter, December, 1853.

Half of the township is covered by the Oquago Mountain, which on the south and east slopes nearly to the river, though, in places, the valley widens, and reveals most inviting flats, rich in soil and culture.
