Our History. “The Scotch-Irish pioneers, with Bibles tucked away in the luggage carried by pack horses, rifle in hand, convictions of rights in mind and religion, according to Presbyterian teaching, in the heart, formed “societies” in the wilderness which later became churches. Such was the genesis of “Old Oxford.” The log fort, erected for physical safety, became a place of spiritual fellowship and security. It gave place to a stone structure which was replaced by the present brick building.” (Submitted on July 5, 2017, by J. J. Prats of Powell, Ohio.)
