Oxford, Nebraska


There is much history to add to this page. Do you have an old Oxford Photo you would like to share? If so, please email it to me, Patti Simpson and I will be happy to post it.

I have also acquired a copy of the Oxford history book, "Four Score and Seven Years". Below is the Table of Contents and a simple index I made myself. I will be happy to do look ups in the book. Email me here. When emailing me, be sure to be specific on your request as I do a lot of look ups for different counties.
