Oxford Historical Society &
The Museum will be open each Thursday from May 6th through October 7th, from
1:00 - 3:00 pm.
The Oxford Historical Society is a private, non-profit educational and cultural
organization established in 1970, chartered in 1981, with about 100 members.
It's goal is to preserve and share Oxford's history with the community. The
Society collects, preserves and tells the story of Oxford's colorful past through
interesting museum exhibits, educational presentations, reference libraries,
photographs, and collections of local artifacts. Some of the fascinating materials
documenting life in Oxford are: local Rail Road (O & W and D L & W)
antiquities, Oxford Academy memorabilia, and Civil War relics to name a few
of the items (over a hundred years old) that can be seen there. The museum
was recently honored, to receive and display, the spectacular Fred Stevens'
Native American arrow points and other artifacts collection as well. These
rare items are from the four Warn Pond historic sites. All of this and more
can be seen at the Oxford Historical Museum, housed in an authentic Railroad
