10 Best Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Oxford, Mississippi - Updated 2021

airbnb oxford ms

Oxford got its name from Oxford in England, as the founders sought to drum up support to attract a university in town. This wish was realized in 1848, when the University of Mississippi was established here. While the university has a larger-than-life presence in town, it’s not the only English influence in town. It is known as the inspiration of a number of authors such as William Faulkner, John Grisham, Willie Morris, and Barry Hannah. New Orleans was also said to have influenced the town, which can be seen in its love for parties and celebrations. Besides its cultural attractions, Oxford has plenty to offer in terms of history, architecture, and food. Book one of the best Airbnb vacation rentals in Oxford, Mississipi, and see how this town melds its various influences to create an environment that’s truly its own.
