Top 6 Reasons to Live in Oxford, Alabama

  • The city of Oxford, Alabama was originally called Lick Skillet, but later changed to its present moniker. Although some believe it got its name from the university city in England, it's really named after the shallow crossing at Choccolocco Creek that allowed cattle farmers to move their herds from one side to the other. Today, Oxford is rapidly growing and has a population of around 21,000.
