Oxford Mississippi is a lovely college town located in Lafayette County Mississippi. Founded in 1835 it is the home to the University of Mississippi and a thriving culture of bakeries, cafe’s and bookstores. The town is in a lovely setting and has maintained a beautiful historic downtown centered around what locals call “The Square.” I had a fantastic time shooting there, and highly recommend a browse in the Square Books shop and a coffee at Bottletree Bakery. Home of many well known writers such as William Falkner and John Grisham, I look forward to the next time I get to peruse the town of Oxford.
