Doug Rozell's Comments: "This list was originally compiled in 1994,
with additions ever since, ad hoc. This list is intended to be
comprehensive of every historical marker that exists in Oxford County
(exclusive of grave stones), including cenotaphs, plaques placed by the
Ontario Heritage Foundation, National plaques, and those placed by local
citizens and groups. It is consequently incomplete, because the
original compiler of the list did not know, and does not know, of every
marker that exists. Moreover, he has not been able to visit the site of
every marker to give it a fuller description. The goal has been to give a
rough indication of the existence of every marker and its location so
that anyone who is interested can go see it for themselves. The value of
markers is that they tell stories about the land around them, so the
value of the list is to tell people how to get to see what the land
looks like where the people lived or the events occurred. The public is
invited to advise of any markers you discover that are not included on
the list, or for which a more complete description would be valuable."
