The years immediately following Nebraska's admission to statehood brought a flow of emigration northward into the Elkhorn River valley. The result of this emigration was the settling of many communities in north-eastern Nebraska. Some of these communities soon lost their identities and ceased to exist. One community which flourished and developed into a town is Oakdale, Nebraska. The history of Oakdale reflects the story of any number of other similar communities, in wich agriculture has been the stabilizing factor, yet Oakdale has a personality of its own.
