The Kalwood Inn was the only business left in Oyama when B & M Grocery (owned by Ben & Marg Kissenbach) and the Oyama Garage (owned by Gus Reich) properties were purchased by the Highways Department. At the time of those closures, Eric and Diane Metcalfe, owners of the Kalwood Inn, said that they would carry milk and bread after the store was gone.
