THE MISSION and VISION of the
  OXFORD MUSEUM 
   A special place; a special heritage

The Oxford Museum collects, records, interprets and shares materials relating to the history of Oxford, Maryland and the surrounding area. Founded in 1964, this non-profit volunteer organization provides resources for historical research and sponsors a variety of programs, activities, and exhibits to foster knowledge and appreciation of this communityís people and history.

The Oxford Museumís vision is to be a premier small town museum, excelling in interpreting and communicating to the public the importance of the community of Oxford and its people to both national and the regional history. As one of the first colonial ports of entry, Oxford today displays visible clues to its long history as a unique rural maritime community. Our goal is to act as a center of information and education and to serve residents and others who seek local historical and genealogical information.
