Lakewood Village LifestyleThe History of Lakewood park

Dating back to 1869, the land value of this town skyrocketed and was then sold to a Montana businessman by the Bixby Investment Company. Homes started popping up in the 1930′s and were highly desirable because the community was within walking distance to the Lakewood Country Club. Years later the residents composed highly of Douglas Aircraft Company employees and attributed to the communities success and accomplishments.
