History

Okolona was originally called Oakland Station, and under the latter name had its start in the 1860s as a station on the Wabash Railroad. There being another Oakland in the state, the town's name was changed to the invented name of Okolona in order to avoid repetition. A post office called Okolona has been in operation since 1866.
