About an hour north of Omaha Nebraska on Highway 71 we found this little town of Oakland. We stopped to find a restroom and lingered a while to drive on the town’s brick road. Yes, an actual brick road. Something very unusual in this part of the country.
This sign told us that there is a lot of home town pride in this small town started by Swedish immigrants. Lawns were neatly trimmed. There is a large golf course and the county fair grounds. And those beautiful bricks neatly laid for their streets.
