Town of Oxford

Located in Oak Grove Township, Oxford is home to nearly 1200 people. Founded in 1843, Oxford was home for the first Benton County Courthouse. Our brick-paved town square is home to the annual Downtown Oxford Farmer’s Market in the summer on Thursday's from 4pm-6:30pm in mid-June through the first of October.  Click the events section for dates! We have two parks with shelter houses that can be rented for reunions, receptions and parties. Our youth attend Prairie Crossing Elementary School and Benton Central Jr/Sr High School. Open to the public, Oxford is fortunate to have the Oak Grove Country Club, an 18-hole golf course.

Oxford is known as the “Home of Dan Patch”. Dan Patch was a world famous harness racing horse, whose 1906 record pace of 1:55, for the mile, stood for 32 years. The barn that housed Dan Patch still stands.

The Town of Oxford is governed by an elected Town Council and Clerk-Treasurer. They hold regular bi-monthly business meetings on the 1st & 3rd Mondays of each month at 7:00 pm EST at the Town Hall, located at 105 S. Howard Street, Oxford, IN. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.
