Orlando was closed from 1861 to 1866. Oakland Post Office reopened in 1877. During a time of great growth in the region during the 1880s, Oakland emerged as the center of commerce in west Orange County, and it appeared that the village would blossom into city, with the town incorporating in 1887. Unfortunately, however, a fire in the business district and a subsequent period of freezes in rapid succession throughout the 1890s, along with the growth of nearby Winter Garden seemed to ensure that Oakland would remain as little more than a sleepy village. Growth was slow to come. In 1940, Oakland surpassed nearby Maitland in Population, ranking at #6 in the county. In 1950, however, Oakland fell back to #7, with a population of 545, the majority of whom were black.
