Oaks is a Village in Montgomery County. The two waterways defined much of the
village's early history. In 1825, the Schuylkill Navigation Company completed the
Schuylkill Canal and Brower's Locks at Oaks, and the system was heavily traveled.
The village of Oaks was named after the canal's designer, Thomas Oakes. Later in the
nineteenth century, the railroad largely supplanted the role of the canal. The
Perkiomen Railroad built the Oaks station in 1868. The Philadelphia and Reading,
sometimes referred to as the Reading Railroad, merged the short line as its Perkiomen
Branch. Oaks village cropped up around the station.
