Settled in the rolling hills of north Mississippi just 70 miles southeast of Memphis, a special place named Oxford, Mississippi began with little more than a few stores and many lofty dreams. The vision that began the town was centered on education - to become the home of the first state university in Mississippi. Many steps lay between what Oxford was then and what Oxford would become.
Today, Oxford is a vibrant university town with an inviting culture and rich history that exemplifies charm and grace. The beautiful and historic Courthouse Square established in 1837 remains the cultural and economic center filled with shops, galleries, eclectic restaurants, music clubs, historic landmarks and more. Young and old find this walkable, family-friendly community has something for everyone; evening strolls among the magnolias, celebrated venues to listen to the blues with friends, local artisan and literary events, indulging in a variety of culinary delights, and so much more.
As the developer and builder of the Oxford Commons master-planned community and new homes for sale, Blackburn Homes understands the allure of this great city and have succeeded in building a community that compliments the town’s culture, architecture, and lifestyle that will leave those only visiting for a game weekend wanting to call this place home.
