Oxford Elementary School fourth-graders visited the Northeast Oakland Historical Museum (1 N. Washington St.) last week.

Students learned all about Oxford's history, industries and early residents.

They also got a pretty good idea of how people lived, worked and played in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
