OAKLEY, Idaho Standing in front of the old Oakley Opera House, Marge Woodhouse spoke of the rich history of this Idaho community where residents still value the arts, hard work and Latter-day Saint teachings.
"It hasn't changed much over the years," said Sister Woodhouse, a retired teacher. "The church and the school are the center of the community here."
Located between the Oregon and California Trails in south central Idaho, Oakley sits in the heart of the Goose Creek Valley. The pioneer community still has poplar-lined streets, picket fences, beautiful historic homes, and more than 90 percent of its residents are Latter-day Saints.
