History

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 families who also get to enjoy the land.
