Oxford, Mississippi


Oxford is a beautiful southern town. Home to the University of Mississippi and a historic moment in desegregation. And, it is where you will find Rowan Oak, the home of William Faulkner.

Ole Miss and Clouds, Oxford

A Southern Beauty

 

The commemoration of James Meredith’s historic admission as the first African American student to the University of Mississippi. A pivotal moment in the civil rights movement.

Not only a Pulitzer Prize winning author and Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Faulkner was also an avid photographer and equestrian. 

Kodak, Brownie and 64

 

If this typewriter could talk, the stories it would tell… Faulkner wrote all his great works on this baby.
