After visiting the observatory at Harvard, Chancellor Barnard designed the plans for this observatory, which would house his collection of physics instruments and a new telescope deliberately built to be four inches larger than the one at Harvard. Due to the Civil War, the telescope was never delivered to Oxford. The east wing became the residence for the professor of physics and astronomy, and the west and middle sections were classroom and laboratories. Barnard Observatory is now home for the Center for the Study of Southern Culture.

Burns-Belfry Museum & Multicultural Center
The legacy of recently emancipated African Americans stands proudly today in tribute to their determination to build their own church. Their frame Methodist Episcopal Church built in 1867 near the Oxford Square was replaced in 1910 with a twin-steepled brick church. Following the building’s restoration in 2013, the Mississippi Landmark now serves the community as a history museum and an events center. Professionally designed exhibits review African American life from Enslavement through Civil Rights. A video and accompanying panels tell the Burns Church story. Local African Americans are featured throughout the museum. It’s an easy walk to the Burns-Belfry Museum from the historic Oxford Square.

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.
