Second Presbyterian Church
Oxford, Warren County
Oxford contains several interesting buildings from the eighteenth and
nineteenth centuries. It was the site of an early ironworks, a bit
which remain, a substantial manor house, now restored, and this 1866
red brick church. Traditional in design, the decorative elements have
been borrowed from several periods. It fuses a Wren-Gibbs style building
with Romanesque decorative elements. The workmanship is exceptional;
notice particularly the strone surrounding the basement windows, and
the brickwork at the rear of the church.
