Welcome to Oxford!

A City of History, Community, Education, and Trees

Oxford, chartered in 1839, was established by the Methodist Episcopal Church as the birthplace of Emory College. Today, the City of Oxford is home to Oxford College, Emory's historic campus, where twenty-five percent of Emory undergraduates choose to spend their freshmen and sophomore years in a liberal arts intensive program before completing their Emory degrees on the Atlanta Research campus.

We are a quiet community, 35 miles from Atlanta. We delight in our history, our forests, trails, and wide boulevards, our homes, churches, and schools. We're moving into the future with hope, enjoying our new City Hall, new maintenance facility, and plans to establish a mixed-use new Town Center District for community activities.
