Oxford is a town located in western New Haven County, Connecticut, United States. Part was taken to form Town of Beacon Falls.

In the 18th century, farmers herded livestock through Oxford from as far away as Litchfield on the way to the port of New Haven. In the 19th century, the town lost population as farmers moved to work in better-paying factories.
