The new book includes 147 buildings, many not listed earlier, plus original entries with updated ownerships and new color photographs. In addition a separate section “Gone, but Not Forgotten” memorializes 33 early houses that have been lost to time or demolition. A similar portion documents 19 public and private early schools. All information gathered during the Committee’s research is part of the Twitchell -Rowland Homestead archives. The Oxford Historical Society's book "Historic Buildings of Oxford Past and Present" will be on sale at the talk for $25.
