April 12th - Oxford, Iowa

This Easter Sunday we are heading to the community of Oxford, Iowa! This city of around 700 people in Eastern Iowa shares it's name with the famous university city in the United Kingdom, along with towns in Canada, New Zealand and several other US states. The Iowa version of Oxford is notable in it's own right however, having been the focus of "The Oxford Project", a book combining photos of residents taken 20 years apart with their stories about life in a small town.
