OXFORD – Want to know what life was like 200 years ago in the Village of Oxford? When Uri Tracy was the “President” of Oxford, and Theodore Burr, the “Father of American Bridge Building,” was starting work on his Federal style house, now the Oxford Memorial Library?



Then visit the Oxford Historical Society’s “Early Living Skills Fair” from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at the museum on 1 Depot St. in the village.

The event, being held in honor of the village’s upcoming bicentennial, will feature over two dozen demonstrations, presentations and hands-on workshops depicting the times, trends and challenges of old Oxford.
