Oxford, Maine - Introduction
Oxford County occupies about two-thirds of our New England border, having a length of about 100 miles. Lying in near neighborhood with the White Hills of New Hampshire, Oxford County is emphatically the hill-region of Maine. Though it does not contain the highest eminences in the State, it presents more lofty peaks than any other equal extent of territory in New England. Among the most noted we should mention Mount Pleasant in Denmark, about 2,000 feet in height, and peculiar in its isolation, Speckled Mountain in Trafton and Streaked Mountain in Buckfield, striking in their appearance; and Mount Mica in Paris, noted for the variety and beauty of its minerals. Granite, largely in the form of gneiss, underlies most of the county. Silver, gold, lead, zinc, arsenic, plumbago and iron are found in various places, also many varieties of valuable minerals. Tokens of former extensive action of water is shown everywhere in the excavation of valleys and the deposit of drift, while the bed rock, when uncovered, often exhibits glacial or drift markings. The soil in general is a gravelly loam, resting usually upon a solid bed of coarse gravel called "pan." It is generally productive. Along the streams are many broad tracts of interval, with a soil of mingled vegetable and mineral matter, formed by the overflow waters in spring and autumn. The great pinetrees, which were formerly numerous in all parts of the county, have been largely cut off, but there still remain, especially in northern and western parts, heavy growths of spruce, hemlock, rock-maple, beech and birch. The scenery of Oxford County is unsurpassed of its kind. Lofty and snowclad peaks, with almost impassable glens between, have their peculiar and thrilling attraction; but the peaceful verdure of great woods, grassy valleys, rich meadows, hillsides enlivened with flocks and herds, shining streams, and sky-repeating ponds, with occasional breeze-swept eminences, affording wide views of the surrounding beauties, hold the regard of the lover of nature for a longer time, and are more restorative in their influences.

Oxford County contains the larger portion of the lakes which form the source of the Androscoggin River, which also runs for nearly onethird of its length through the midst of the county. In the central portion of the county lie the ponds from which the Little Androscoggin takes its rise. By numerous turnings and windings, the beautiful Saco River confers on this county, in its southern portion, about one half its length.

Oxford Area Code is 207
