The Marion Oaks community was begun in 1972 be the Deltona corporation. Originally planned for retirees, it has grown to be a large, diverse community of families of all ages and ethnicities. But there is yet to be a "History of Marion Oaks" written and many of the original home owners are no longer with us. Our Project hopes to reclaim that heritage and record the growth and changes that have made us a unique neighborhood in Marion County. We will interview, photograph, and record historical evidence and testimonies to tell the story of Marion Oaks. The hope is to create a website, display exhibit and book that tells that history. Join us in the Marion Oaks History Project!
