Our Story


Oscoda County was established March 10, 1881. Previously, it had been Comins Township attached to Alcona County, which had been formed about 1869 when it was split from Alpena County. Prior to that, the area belonged to the Indians who ceded it to the United States Government by the Treaty of Saginaw in 1819.

Photo of the Week

Our community group has created a weekly photo challenge, check back here every Monday to view our new winning photo! Participate in this contest by joining our Facebook group. Join by clicking the picture or here and answer a few questions and get ready to share in appreciating things in the community as well.

Let’s talk about “Community” because we have a growing Facebook Group that has a few rules but focuses on the positive and people getting to know each other by sharing. The group is all about good intentions.

Give it a try and see if you like a group that is committed to improving how we communicate with each and focus on things that people love to see.
