The Oxford Mill Oxford Kansas

The old Oxford mill
Traveling West form Winfield Ks. on highway 160 you will come to the small town of Oxford Kansas.

Located on the Arkansas River this quaint little Kansas Town is full of charm and History.
The Old Grist Mill built in 1849 sets on West Bank of the river.














Although the Old Mill is not used to mill the grain the local farmers would bring,
the Old mill has a new life and purpose.

The Owners of the Mil, Wallace Champing and Hal Ross completely restored the mill back in 1988-89.
The restoration was completed as they replaced most of the support posts and beams, new joists and flooring, and refurbished Head House.

The old mill now serves as a popular tourist attraction , with many visitors every year.
The owners have opened a restaurant in the newly remodeled Head House.


So the next time you are wanting someplace  to go Oxford Kansas is just a short drive from Wichita Kansas,

Just head south on the the turnpike, exit at Wellington the go East until you arrive in Oxford, there are signs directing you to the mill.
