Beginnings [1]

Laid out in 1792, New Oxford is an attractive town built around a neat square. Situated in a rich fruit-growing section, New Oxford has a small cannery, but the principal support is from two shoe factories, two clothing factories, a cigar factory, and a nearby brick yard and lime plant.
