This free, self-guided tour of New Oxford takes you to a small town, just twenty minutes east of Gettysburg.

For hundreds of years, New Oxford has been a major stopping point on what was then known as the "Philadelphia to Pittsburgh Pike" that tied those two cities together. Today, New Oxford is known as the "Antiques Capital of Central Pennsylvania" and many people visit for the opportunity to do some of the finest antiques shopping in the Eastern United States. If antique shopping is on your agenda, we hope that you will find that perfect treasure in New Oxford. As you stroll through town, enjoy the wide display of beautiful architecture in the homes, churches and other structures that make up New Oxford.

The walking tour begins at the town circle headed East in a clockwise direction. You should allow approximately 60-minutes at a leisurely pace to complete the entire tour. Parking is free on the streets of New Oxford, with a 2-hour time limit in the circle between the hours of 8 am - 5 pm.

A special thank you to Steve and Tina McNaughton creators of this special New Oxford Walking Tour.
