The town of Oxford was first incorporated by the Alabama legislature in 1852. The original boundaries included a one square mile area enlarged in 1860. Oxford became active as a cotton and trading center but during the Civil War growth slowed, and in 1865 Union soldiers burned almost all of the downtown buildings. Twelve buildings built before 1855 remain. The Simmons Park, given to the city in 1870, was a wagon yard for farmers selling cotton in 1860.
