Oxford city leaders form careful plans for the prosperous growth of their city while preserving the unique beauty and hometown atmosphere of this NC community.
Incorporated in 1861, Oxford serves as the seat to Granville County. Located in the lush rolling hills of Carolina's upper Piedmont Region, most of Granville County is rural agricultural land. Originally, this had been plantation country, and many splendid plantation manor houses still remain. The region's excellent location, however, is attracting many industries to the area. Situated north of the dynamic Research Triangle, Interstate 85 provides swift access to the bustling cities of Durham, Raleigh and Chapel Hill.
Oxford is the main site for incoming firms. Some of the corporations found here are the Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company, Revlon, Inc., Plastic Ingenuity and Bandag Inc. The Granville Economic Development Commission aids businesses in locating in Oxford. Individual incentive programs are tailor-made for each firm. Oxford townspeople hold a reputation for strong work ethics and conscientious behavior. Five miles north of Oxford is the Vance Granville Community College, which works with local industries to give residents free training to suit companies' individual needs. Fourteen other colleges and universities lie within a short commute.
Historic Downtown Oxford is also attracting new businesses. While preserving the picturesque beauty of the Downtown area, city planners welcome new retail shops and specialty boutiques. Oxford is the center of shopping and dining for all of Granville County, and the quaint ambience of the town attracts shoppers wanting to escape the bustling cities.
Oxford maintains a sense of strong family values. Children have access to four lovely athletic parks, including one skate park. Numerous volleyball and tennis courts are here, and a field each for soccer, baseball and football. The Granville County public school system consistently receives commendations for providing some of the best rural education in North Carolina.
