With a population of about 6,000, the Chester County borough of Oxford is located between Philadelphia and Baltimore and was often the stopping point on the two-day trip between the cities in the 1800’s. Oxford was officially incorporated in 1833, with the northern half owned by the Dickey family—a family of influential people, including a Presbyterian minister, a local bank executive, local businessmen and a state Representative.
Once the railroad came through Oxford, it began to grow, and was soon known for many manufacturing facilities, including confectionery and candy businesses. The Oxford Presbyterian Church—one of the oldest buildings in Oxford—was destroyed by fire in 1989 after the steeple was struck by lightning, however it has since been rebuilt.
