Oak Grove Historical Society's

2018 Cookbook


This cookbook includes recipes from the

1930's and 1940's along with more recent recipes. 

The cover is a photo of Hollis Dyer,

former president of the

Commercial Bank of Oak Grove.


 Some of the recipes did not show the cooking temperature because stoves burned wood and there were no gauges.  Measurements were not noted either. 

There are also historic photos with a small description

of what is shown.


They would make nice gifts for the holidays.

Oak Grove Afghan

This beautiful afghan shown below was through the efforts

of Becky Dyer to create something that recorded a snapshot

of life in Oak Grove.

Churches play an important role in the community. She has

included a picture of the new fire station, the middle school,

the train depot, the Church of Jesus Christ Restoration Branch,

New Life Assembly of God, Community of Christ Church,

St Jude the Apostle Church, Oak Grove Christian Church,

Grace Baptist Church, Church of Christ and the

First Baptist Church of Oak Grove.

The afghans are one of our projects to raise funds

for the Oak Grove Historical Society.

They are now on sale for $40 each.

You can contact any member of the Oak Grove

Historical Society to purchase one.

The quality is excellent and they would be a wonderful gift

for the holidays to someone you know.
