325+ YEARS OF REMARKABLE HISTORY
The Oxford Museum was
founded in Oxford, Maryland, in 1964 by a group of residents dedicated to preserving and
displaying Oxford’s 300 plus years of colonial and American history.
Located in the center of town, the wheelchair-accessible Museum
displays a diverse and ever-growing collection of artifacts and
memorabilia that chronicles the fascinating story of one of the
oldest towns in America and, for its size, one of the most
significant. From seventeen members in 1964, Museum membership has
grown to over four hundred today. The Museum is essentially an
all-volunteer organization that is dependent entirely on the
interest and generosity of members, visitors and area residents.
With such support, the Museum is able to present a broad spectrum of
lectures, displays, research materials, publications, and special
exhibits. Yearly visitors now number over 4,000, a remarkable
achievement for a small town museum.
