THE MAPPING OF OXFORD
The “Mapping of Oxford”
exhibit that opens at the Museum on August 10 will display
one of its most important artifacts, the 1707 "fair plat of the
Town wth the Course and Distance and quantity of
Land Contained in every particular Lott Street Lane and Allie fairly
drawn upon parchment" required by the Maryland General Assembly.
The 1707 survey will be accompanied by various exhibits showing the
growth of Oxford from a small spot on the map to a bustling town in
the late 19th century.
