The area later to become the good town of Oxford was originally inhabited by the Pootatuck and Paugassett native tribes. English settlers first migrated to the area around the 1680’s and formally incorporated the town of Oxford in 1798, giving its name after the town of Oxford back in the ‘mother country’ of England.
In late 2001, the town of Oxford was lamentably thrust into the storm center of a national security crisis when one of its longtime residents, 94-year-old Ottilie Lundgren, died of anthrax poisoning linked to the anthrax postal attacks launched by Islamic jihadists against New York and Washington D.C. at that time.
The actress Barbara Hershey - who has starred in such films as Boxcar Bertha, Hannah and Her Sisters, Falling Down, and Black Swan - has been a longtime resident of Oxford for decades.
The film Falling Down that starred the aforementioned Ms Hershey was about an ordinary family man pushed to breaking point by a world and society seemingly spinning out of control and ready to implode.
