Roxbury, NJ

Roxbury was founded in 1740 and has a rich heritage. Originally a center for Iron Mining and forges that supplied George Washington and the Continental Army, our community grew with the cutting of roads east and west and the building of the Morris Canal in 1827. Roxbury was a major hub for the Canal, with Lake Hopatcong as a water source. Four inclined canal planes and two locks were located within Roxbury, with many businesses established during the 19th century to service the canal. Local explosives plants would supply dynamite for the mines and railroad building and employ generations of Roxbury Township residents. By the 1880's the railroad would overtake the canal for commercial transportation and Roxbury exploded in growth with two major, and competing rail lines. By 1890 Roxbury was 'the' gateway to the busy resorts of Lake Hopatcong, one of the region's most popular summer destinations for over 50 years. The coming decades brought a 'boom time' of new train stations, schools, homes and businesses, yet always in an orderly sort of way.
