Oxford Overview

Originally part of Derby, Oxford was settled as a collection of farms. It was officially established in 1798. Today, nearly 15,000 residents call Oxford home – taking great pride in their strongly-bonded community.

Waterbury-Oxford Airport

Like towns throughout the Waterbury region, Oxford enjoys proximity to Interstate 84 and Route 8.

Because of this, the Waterbury-Oxford Airport – a public-use airport which opened in 1969 – is popular for general aviation corporate, business and recreational flight operations.
