OAKWOOD CENTER was anchored by locally-owned D.H. Holmes. The store, the fifth branch in the chain, encompassed 143,000 square feet and included an in-store Public Auditorium and freestanding cafeteria.

In our first OAKWOOD CENTER layout, we have a depiction of the mall as it stood in 1966 (the "butterfly twin" cinema shown in gray would be completed in August 1967). At this time, the mall proper of OAKWOOD encompassed approximately 690,000 leasable square feet. There was space for fifty-six stores and services under its roof.
