About Oxford, Maryland
Located in Talbot County, Md., Oxford is a quiet small town on the Tred Avon River. It’s home to the Oxford-Bellevue Ferry, the famous Robert Morris Inn and the Scottish Highland Creamery, which serves the best ice cream on the East Coast. The town’s sleepy streets are lined with brick sidewalks. There’s a waterside community park, a small town grocery store and a few restaurants for good sea fare. The town itself is a narrow peninsula surrounded by water.
Oxford is known more for its marinas and its beautiful homes than for tourist attractions. Homes downtown vary in price, but they are mostly historic, colonial-style homes. The waterfront homes are particularly prized. There are also fine estate properties close to town along Oxford Road.
