When did Willow Park incorporate and who led the way?

Where is the oldest building in the City?

How did Willow Park get its name?

Perhaps you’ll enjoy finding out these answers by reading the history that’s now posted on our website. I thank the Council for allowing me the opportunity to delve into our City’s past and interpret it for those who are interested. Special thanks go to those who allowed me their time and memories through personal interviews -- Wynell StevensZ.C. and Ray Baker,Alvist (Al) V. Rice, Edd Spradling, Ann and Steven Bolton -- and to others who provided bits and pieces of the puzzle. I consider this story to be an unfinished project, and intend to keep on digging! I will be updating and adding new information frequently, so check back often. To read the city history please click on the link below.
