William and Phoebe Middaugh Owen’s four-story Oakdene was first advertised around 1900. Oakdene was not on Washington Lake, but located southeast of the intersection of Airport Road and Washington Lake Road. Oakdene, run by Phoebe Owen for many years, is thought to have burned down sometime in the mid-1930s.
