History[edit | edit source]

An explorer named Wm. E. Martindale was appointed to explore Goose Creek Valley, having made a favorable report of his explorations. Settlers from Tooele County, Utah decided to settle on the land know as Oakley. The site of Oakley was chosen for the settlement and named Oakley, on account of a post office having been established in the part of Goose Creek Valley sometime previously in honor of a Mr. William Oakley, who kept a stage station at a place now called Oakley Meadow, in 1882.
