The village was founded by its first settlers in 1791, including landowner Benjamin Hovey (1758–1811), a later business partner of Aaron Burr and cousin Theodore Burr.

The former Chenango Canal passed through the village, connecting the community to Utica and Binghamton.

In 1985, many of its historic buildings were included in the Oxford Village Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places.
