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.
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.
