How about Oxford taking the barn and adding it to the Historical House that they moved last year? Why should another town take it?
Also-why does Oxford need another medical plaza on Rte 67? There are already empty office spaces up and down that road. This is also the first I heard of this medical plaza; the town administration seems to keep these sort of things under the rug...will Oxford officials wake up and start putting some sort of plan in place to perserve our town?

What a shame!! Another 8.5 acres of open space, plus two historic buildings, gone to greedy developers.
