Oakville was the name of the selection taken up by John Clark in 1894 near the present locality of Oakville. Clark built a 4 room cottage and fenced and improved the land. The selection straddled a valley known as Oak Hollow because of the number of She Oaks (Casuarinas) which grew along the creek. Clark named his property Oakville and the district around it soon became known by the same name.
