Congratulations to Oxford: City of the Week with WCSX! Oxford Township was not created officially till Michigan became a state in 1837. Originally Oxford Township was part of Oakland County along with Addison Township and Orion Township.
As many settlers came to Oxford, it eventually became a village in 1876. Two other communities formed near the edges of the township, Thomas and Oakwood. A railroad station, store, hotel, grain elevator, and gristmill were built in the late 1870s.
As of 2010, Oxford has over 3400 people.
