The Road to Oxford
The back road (Route 42) to Oxford is marked by sharp turns and a selection of historic homes and farms. As you leave Beacon Falls, you will pass the Pines Bridge Cemetery on your left which dates back to 1800. When the town was organized in 1871, the cemetery was transferred from private ownership to the town which enlarged it in 1883.The graves of the earliest settlers are located in the old part of the cemetery.
Go approximately 2.7 miles. Keep following the signs on Rt. 42 West. (The road makes several sharp turns, but it is well marked.). Turn right on Rt. 67 North.
Along the road to Oxford you will pass several historic homes that pre-date the American Revolution such as the ones pictured here on Chestnut Tree Hill Extension.
