On Sunday afternoon, folks participated in the Northeast Oakland Historical Society’s third annual walking tour of the Oxford Twp. cemetery on W. Burdick St. Seventy-eight tickets were sold. Folks were treated to stories about early residents who helped make the community what it is today. The stories were told by volunteers dressed in period clothing.
