The Historical Archives

In 2014, an Archives Committee was created to acquire and process documents and objects related to the history of the Oxford Area. We have continued to grow this project and we now have over 3300 publications, artifacts, maps, research materials, personal records, and audio-visual materials that have been processed and recorded in our database. A committed group of volunteers continues to work to catalog the items we are collecting.

Through generous donations and an ongoing Capital Campaign, we have been able to move into the historic school building at 119 S. 5th Street to house our growing collection. Videos of our past programs and recorded oral histories are also available at this site. Our goal is to create displays and to be a community resource where people can research local history.

If you are interested in volunteering or need additional information, please email us at:

Our collection continues to grow. If you have items that you think we might be interested in, please contact us.

99% of our funding comes from people in our local area.
