Oakmont is built on land that was originally owned by Peter and Mary Sernowski, who received the land in 1928. They owned over 100 acres and used it for farming hay and hosting a community garden. In the 1970’s Peter and Mary’s daughter, June, and her husband, Robert, inherited a portion of the land. In 2011, Robert and June sold part of the land to Sarasota Homes. June and Robert still call Oakmont home and enjoy being surrounded by the families that choose to live in the area.
As with many of the streets in St. Albert, several of Oakmont’s roads reflect the history of the city.
Olivier Bellerose, an early settler with 13 children, was an employee of the Hudson’s Bay Company. Stationed at Dunvegan and Lesser Slave Lake, he poled boats on the river, engaging in trade. Oliver Close is named in his honour.
Catherine Onesti donated a church bell in 1887. Onesti Place commemorates her generosity.
Pierre Ouellette was a resident that headed to the Yukon and struck gold. Sadly, he perished the following year. Ouellette Place bears his name.
