Main Street Oakland

Main Streets Center of Community
Main Streets are the core of historic communities across the country for many reasons, and Garrett County is no exception. Oakland, Garrett County’s county seat, is also a nationally Main Street. Nestled in the mountains, Oakland’s Main Street is a thriving downtown area with pedestrian friendly shopping, great restaurants and home to a variety of historical sites.
We strive to keep our downtown centers as they were intended to be—a place to walk, shop and enjoy life. Main Street commercial districts are an integral part of all communities, as they often employ hundreds of people, strengthen our economy, and keep our culture and heritage alive.
Come see for yourself why Garrett County is so proud of Main Street Oakland, a perfect reflection of our community’s pride and offerings.
