Live Oak County Historical Commission (LOCHC)Events  

Throughout Live Oak County History, many artifacts share beautiful and rugged memories. "The creation of the present [Live Oak] county boundaries was by legislative act approved on February 2, 1856. (LOCHC History of the People of Live Oak County, Texas-1981:7.)

This synopsis begins a current story of preservation initiated by Live Oak County Historical Commission Appointee, Charles "Gipper" Nelson. Gipper is a descendant of Cornelious Cox who left this legacy. Thanks to Albert Davila, who with his wife, Mari, continue saving buildings and artifacts of those early days on property at old Oakville. Thanks also to the people who donate these buildings and artifacts as well as those who do the work to see them preserved. Check out the results of the Davila's work on the Progress Dec. 25, 2019 article or visit the Historic Oakville Jailhouse & Guesthouses website
