Oxford, Iowa

I bet you always wondered where Ashton Kutcher was from, didn't you? The town of Oxford, Iowa, also has some great buildings on its main street as well.I love how the building below has a strange, round window right in the middle of its front wall; there are many unique architectural varieties in Iowa, probably the work of individual masons who imprinted their personal style on buildings.I love driving into small towns in Iowa and finding unique buildings.

    It's fun to speculate on the original uses of some of these buildings. The rack-faced building on the far left of the first photo just HAD to be the bank; the red building on the corner HAD to be a clothing-type store, whence the large windows. The building with the round window had to be a fellowship hall of some sort - well, either that or one commissioned by Mr. Mell----.
