1. Kuhn Tavern Marker
Inscription.  
This was a tavern site along the Marsh Creek Road as early as 1763. Operated by the Frederick Kuhn family from 1769 until 1791. In the next year son Henry Kuhn laid out, the town of Oxford here on part of his 256 acre property. Well located at the intersection of east west, and north south roads, the town, eventually called New Oxford, prospered. The use of this building as a tavern and hotel continued until about 1885. The original part of this building was the first building in New Oxford. The brick section and porch were added at a later date. On both interior and exterior it still bears traces of its earliest construction and use.
 
Erected 1999 by James K. Stock.
