The Unorganized Territory of North Oxford is a large expanse, stretching from Gilead up to the Canadian border and accounting for about 25% of Oxford County’s total land area, that is nearly uninhabited, with a population of just 24 according to the 2010 census. The Territory contains fifteen townships, including Grafton, which was once a small town. The area was once heavily logged, and the logging companies, which own much of the Territory’s land now, continue this practice with more sustainable means today.

North Oxford’s Deer Mountain is the site of Maine’s second worst military plane crash. During World War 2 a B-17 bomber en-route to Europe crashed during a storm, killing all 10 crewmen onboard. (Source). The site of the crash is marked by a memorial accessible by local hiking trails.
