John Cofield's Oxford & Ole Miss: The Oliver-Britt House

The Oliver-Britt House on Van Buren Avenue was built in 1905. Dr. William S. Guyton used the Greek Revival House for his Eye Clinic in the 1920’s. It remained a clinic until 1982, when it was sold and became known as The Oliver-Britt House & Tea Room. The house underwent renovations in 2008, and continues to have the charm and character of the south with modern conveniences and contemporary furnishings. This house has hosted visitors from around the world. The names are in the guest registry in the lobby and visitors are encouraged to add their names.

John Cofield is a HottyToddy.com writer and one of Oxford’s leading folk historians. He is the son of renowned university photographer, Jack Cofield. His grandfather, J.R. “Colonel” Cofield, was William Faulkner’s personal photographer and for decades was the Ole Miss yearbook photographer. Cofield attended Ole Miss as well.
Stay tuned for more information on Cofield’s forthcoming book: Oxford, Mississippi ~ The Cofield Collection — a pictorial history book with John’s writing on the history to go along with the photos.
