Oxford historian strives to live up to legacy

OXFORD – When beloved Oxford Historian Charlotte Stafford passed away in 2010, she left behind a vast array records she had compiled over the course of her thirty odd years in service to the town and village. It has been left to Stafford’s chosen prodigy, Vicky House, to manage the assortment of documents as well as tend to the responsibilities of the village/town historian.

“At first I didn’t want to do it, but she had a way of getting you to do what she wanted,” laughed House. “She taught me her way of doing things and I thought I would never remember it all because she had a mind like a computer.” But House has been able to remember much of Stafford’s tutelage and since taking over as Oxford’s historian she has gone about following her predecessor’s (at times very specific) instructions as well as branching out to find historical projects of her own.
