Originally formed as the Norway and Paris Street Railway, the Oxford Electric Company also purchased property rights to supply electric power to the towns of Norway, Paris, and Mechanic Falls. The company had two divisions, the Mechanic Falls Division and the Norway & Paris Division. It stopped service on its street railway in 1918 and was absorbed by Central Maine Power Company in 1921.
