OXFORD – Since the Night Eagle Cafe’s departure, local residents have taken it upon themselves to orchestrate a community effort in selecting a new business or venture for the downtown Oxford location. The group is headed by the owners of the Lafayette Park storefront, David and Mary El Emerson, who have already been approached about renting the space.
“We wanted the community’s input. Right now, we’re certainly concentrating around the arts, maybe something to do with learning, the youth or entertainment. We have a lot of different venues to consider,” said Mary El.
