Town of Oreana - Complete

In 1900, the town of Oreana in Whitmore Township was in its infancy. This census was just one sheet, enumerated on 26 June 1900 by G.W. Reynolds. I lived in Oreana when I was young and attended school in Argenta. It was amazing to see just how small the town once was. Submitted by Gayle Pace Jones.
