Old Vets' Home slated for demolition in Oxford

OXFORD – The wrecking ball is set to strike the former Oxford Veterans’ Home sometime this spring or summer, according to a Sept. 24 correspondence from the New York State Department of Health.

Facilities Management Director Val S. Gray confirmed that the current facility would be demolished “shortly after relocation of residents and staff into the new facility.” The existing building will be occupied until late fall of 2009.

The lands are to be used to supplement the adjacent new facility’s bio-retention system; for creating more parking; for resident recreational activities and to create gardens and ample green space.
