New Oxford is now a key stop along the Lincoln Highway as one of our Chamber members, Redbud House, has just installed an electric car charging station behind their store that will make it possible for electric cars to re-charge while in New Oxford. Later this Spring, another member, The Christmas Haus, will be installing similar equipment. This is important because it will attract electric car drivers passing through and each one will spend their recharging time (1-2 hours) shopping, enjoying lunch or coffee, or simply enjoying a walk around town. This is a great news for New Oxford!
