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 of 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.
