Oxford, incorporated in 1841, is the home of Mississippi's first state university, U.M, which still continues to educate students today. During the Civil War, the town was set afire, burning the courthouse and surrounding homes. Today, the rebuilt courthouse stands center in the heart of its downtown to greet its visitors. Boutiques, bookstores, saloon style restaurants, and coffeeshops line the square around the courthouse.
