Oxford’s unparalleled charm captivates both visitors and lifelong residents. The charismatic university town is filled with shops and galleries, fine-dining and casual restaurants, historic landmarks and parks.
Located among the rolling hills of north Mississippi, Oxford’s vibrant reputation has made it a Southern mecca for arts and culture and a destination for those seeking creative exploration and expression.
The community’s Southern hospitality has attracted educators, writers, researchers and other professionals who have found Oxford to be the ideal community to pursue careers and raise families.
A variety of annual programs, such as the Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference, the Oxford Conference for the Book and the Southern Foodways Symposium keep visitors coming back. Not to be overlooked is William Faulkner’s historic antebellum home, Rowan Oak, still intact and open for tours. A full calendar of exciting Southeastern Conference sports action and the world-famous experience of tailgating in the Grove also are major attractions.
