Oxford’s early houses have stories to tell, and many of their tales are included in the new book Historic Buildings of Oxford Past and Present just published by the Oxford Historical Society.
This 96 page book features new colored photographs and individual descriptions and histories of over 140 houses, churches, and other Oxford buildings constructed before 1900. More than an update to the 1976 work Early Houses of Oxford, it includes many houses not listed earlier plus original entries with current ownerships. In addition, a section titled “Gone, but Not Forgotten” memorializes early houses that have been lost to time or demolition. A chapter is also devoted to the town’s early schools, both public and private.
