Home to quaint Victorian houses and a haven for local artists, Oxford Maryland offers leisurely activities, enchanting tourist attractions, and escape from busy city life.

One of the oldest towns in America, founded in 1683, this charming village boasts a rich history of maritime activity through the American Revolution, Civil War, and transportation revolutions. Early in the day, visitors can watch local watermen bring in fresh fish and seafood to the market.

The beautiful historic section of town preserves its account through notable landmarks, such as 216 Morris Street, where the longest serving postmaster in U.S. history worked the early post office for 63 years, or the Grapevine House, built in 1785, on 309 Morris Street.

Oxford also has a variety of specialty shopping and excellent dining, including the Scottish Highland Creamery, voted the “Best Ice Cream on the Eastern Shore,” and the Oxford Market, a family owned company, which serves as both a gathering place and a grocery store with a variety of products, as well as homemade soups and sandwiches. Featuring antique shops with specialty crafts and handmade jewelry by local artists, such as the Treasure Chest, and the Mystery Loves Company Booksellers, there is no shortage of unique mementos to commemorate your trip.
