A project to turn the historic former train station in Oxford into a restaurant and event venue is now rolling down the tracks.

Business owner and Oxford City Councilwoman Charlotte Hubbard bought the old building, and plans to turn it into Spring Street Station, an “upscale, fast-food service” restaurant and event space. City officials and guests were recently invited to take part in the groundbreaking.

Dozens of community members came to bear witness to the project’s beginning. With a countdown, Hubbard – a former educator and owner of Hubbard’s Off Main restaurant in Oxford – and others dug their shovels into freshly tilled dirt and tossed it in the air, marking the start of the new development.
