Due to the COVID-19 Virus the OxHS Resource Centre will be closed until further notice. We can be reached by email at

Our Resource Centre offices are in the same foreground buildings (shown right) as the Oxford County Archives. The house was originally the Governor’s House of the Old Oxford County Jail; was extensively renovated between 2009 and 2012 and a new annex added on its left. This building is also home to the Oxford County Archives and the Woodstock Branch of Ontario Ancestors.

The Resource Centre offices are open Monday to Friday between 10 am and 4 pm. They are staffed by volunteer members of Oxford Historical Society and the OGS Oxford Branch, to help you with your historical research.
