Kelly's Livery Stable
Dan Patch was a famous race horse born at Kelly's Livery Stable. Dan Patch never lost a race and set a record for the mile (1:55) that stood for more than thirty years. The stable is just south of the IN 55 - IN 352 intersection.
Oxford was once the seat of Benton County, but following condemnation of the courthouse in 1873, Fowler became the county seat. The square remains, and it helps make Oxford a rather attractive little town.
