The Oxford Area Historical Association (OAHA), which was
founded in 2000 by Dr. Faye Doyle, is a local group of
volunteers and members whose mission is to preserve and
promote the historical significance of the Oxford Area. We
present monthly programs on a variety of historical topics,
record oral histories of long time Oxford residents, and have
organized walking tours, co-sponsored reenactor programs in
the school district, and arranged trips to historical sites. In
2014, a new project was launched by OAHA. An Archives
Committee was created to acquire and process documents
and objects related to the history of the Oxford Area. Our
Archives Collection is now housed at 140-142 Locust St.
The mission of the Oxford Area Historical Association is to preserve and promote the historical significance of the
Oxford area, educate the community on historical interests, and to encourage the economic vitality of the Oxford
area through historic preservation.
