Oxford, Maryland, was officially founded in 1694, making it one of Maryland's oldest towns. Oxford is located near the mouth of the Tred Avon River and served as an important port of entry for British trade vessels in Colonial times. Oxford enjoyed prominence as a shipping center that was surrounded by wealthy tobacco plantations. After the American Revolution, the British import business dried up and the town declined for many years until the oystering businesses began to flourish in the late 1800's.

Today, Oxford is a quiet town that is enjoyed by visitors who appreciate its history and charm. In 2011, Yachting Magazine named Oxford the world's best waterfront town. Chesapeake Bay Magazine has previously named the town 'Best of' in the following categories—Best Town for Families, Best Town for Inexpensive Docking and Best Town for Sightseeing.
