With a cost of living more than 10% below the national average and a wealth of beautiful historic and architecturally homes to choose from, many of today’s Mississippi homebuyers are turning to Oxford Mississippi real estate for their primary and investment homes. The seat of Lafayette County, as well as the home of University of Mississippi, Oxford presents residents and visitors with all the amenities and luxuries of a large city, while working carefully to preserve and protect its small-town charm and ambiance. Those looking specifically for historic homes will enjoy the Courthouse Square Historic District, which encompasses a variety of late 19th and 20th century revival, late Victorian, and Art Deco architectural styles. Many of the buildings in this area were built between 1866 and 1900.
