OXFORD, N.C.—“I now live in Guilford County.  But in many ways I've never left Oxford.”

Those were some of Judge Frank Bullock’s words at a Jan. 10th ceremony to dedicate a mural honoring the city of Oxford, N.C. Judge Bullock, a Womble Carlyle attorney, former US District Court Judge and Oxford native, was the keynote speaker for the ceremony.

Judge Bullock noted the many role models he had growing up in Oxford, a city of 8,500 people in north central North Carolina. These role models included employers, teachers at Oxford High School and his own father, a World War II veteran who fought in the Battle of the Bulge.

The Oxford Bicentennial Mural, officially titled “Oxford and the World,” was created by artist and Oxford native Nicholas Bragg.
