Cedar Hill Farm

Cedar Hill Farm is a family owned and operated farm with 120 acres of rolling hills, surrounded by cedar tree lined fences and woods. Each year improvements are made to make Cedar Hill Farm one of the top Agri-Tourism businesses in the Mid-South. In season, you can pick your own strawberries, blackberries and vegetables, and in the fall and winter, choose and cut your own Pumpkin and cut your own Christmas tree. Cedar Hill Farm is open to the public seasonally and open by reservation for private parties, corporate events, family reunions and weddings year around. Every season brings something new to the farm. The Snack Bar will still be open to the public during our Fall Festival, Annual Easter Egg Hunts and our Choose and Cut Christmas Tree Hours.

Cedar Oaks

This Greek Revival home, designed by William Turner, was used as headquarters for General McPherson during Grant's occupation of Oxford in 1862. Molly Turner Orr gathered a fire brigade to save the home in 1864 after being set aflame by occupying Union troops. Nearly a century later, Cedar Oaks was moved 2.2 miles from its original location when it was threatened with demolition. Currently open for pre-arranged groups only.
