Long Description:
"This two-room stone school was built in 1875 with stones from the Harris quarry. The first principal was W. Thompson who taught sixty pupils, with another sixty taught in the adjacent room. On June 3, 1925, over a thousand former students came together to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the school. In 1964, all the pupils from the twelve rural schools in Oxford were sent to the new brick Oxford-on-Rideau Public School at the northern limits of Oxford Mills. S.S. No. 8 Oxford became a library, and is now a heritage building and community center."
