Our Community

Tree-lined streets, beautiful, historical buildings, and friendly folks have earned Oxford, North Carolina, and it surrounding areas a reputation as a quaint, down-home community. We enjoy year-round recreational opportunities, abundant amenities, and the best people around. This is a wonderful place to call home! 

Things to do

Whether you’re a lifetime resident or a recent transplant, you’ll find something new to do. Here’s just a few.

Cool Off
Kerr Lake has over 850 miles of shoreline stretching across Vance County and the North Carolina/Virginia state line, making it one of the largest lakes in the southeast. Explore, fish, sail, boat, or ski on this beautiful lake or enjoy camping, hiking, bird watching, golfing and more along the shores. 

The Great Outdoors
Enjoy cycling, walking, or jogging along the beautiful Granville Greenways. We’re always working to create new trails for families to enjoy for generations to come.

Bring History to Life
Our beautiful land has played an important role in American history. Since the earliest known inhabitants, the Tuscarora, this land has felt the pain of bloodshed during the American Revolution and Civil War. Visit one of the many museums and memorials to make history come to life:
