These records include:

  • historical records of the County of Oxford 1850 to the present, and its predecessor, the District of Brock, 1842 to 1849.

If you have some materials that you are considering donating, please contact the Archivists. Staff are always interested in receiving new acquisitions, provided that the materials meet the terms of our mandate of collecting materials relating to the people, places and history of Oxford County.

Archives Staff facilitate and monitor public access to the archival information as prescribed by the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, 1990.

The County of Oxford Archives also endeavours to increase public awareness of the rich cultural heritage of Oxford County through the implementation of a comprehensive outreach program, including presentations, displays, and education programs.
