Oakdale, an 80-acre farm that straddles the line between Floyd and Franklin counties just east of the Blue Ridge Parkway, features a ca. 1890 Queen Anne-style house, a large barn, a general store, and an early-20th-century granary and garage, all located on the Floyd County side of the property. Oakdale was the home of Oscar and Ruth Huff, who operated a general store, in addition to managing their large farm. The Huff Store, unusual for its brick construction, served the nearby High Peak community.
