Oxon may refer to a couple of places; one in the United States, and the other in the United Kingdom. Oxon could refer to the English county of Oxfordshire, the old Latin name being Oxonia. Oxfordshire is located in the south east of England and borders the counties of Warwickshire and Northamptonshire to the north, Buckinghamshire to the east, Berkshire to the south, and Wiltshire and Gloucestershire to the west. The county of Oxfordshire has a major tourist industry, and is famous as being home to one of the largest and most well known English universities, the University of Oxford. The University is also home to one of the two teams of the world famous Boat Race, the other being Cambridge. Oxfordshire also houses one of Britain's largest firms, Oxford University Press; a print and publishing firm. The county has a population of nearly 640,000 and is home to 20 settlements, the biggest of which is the City of Oxford, housing over 134,000 people. Oxon could also refer to Oxon Hill, Maryland. It is a suburb of Washington, DC and is located southeast of the district and east of Alexandria, Virginia. There is no official boundary for Oxon Hill, but for statistical purposes it is joined with Glassmanor, which it is adjacent to, to make Oxon Hill-Glassmanor. The population of the area is just under 27,000. The area itself fell under the postal district of Washington, DC until 1960 when it gained a zip code of its own. Today, the area is split between into two for postal purposes; Oxon Hill with zip code 20745, and the remaining part of Oxon Hill, now classed as Fort Washington, zip code 20744. The actress, Taraji P. Henson, and the late singer Eva Cassidy both hail from Oxon Hill.
