The unspoiled and scenic town of Roxbury, located in beautiful Litchfield County, was incorporated in 1796. Roxbury was long known as a mining town, as silver was mined here as well as iron for steel making and granite used to construct, among other landmarks, the Brooklyn Bridge and Grand Central Station. Roxbury is also known as a picturesque farming town with its beautiful rolling hills and open fields, and its location within the watershed of the Shepaug River. The area is as diverse as its residents, which include actors, artists, writers and local tradesmen who help to keep the ambulance and fire department a volunteer service. Nearly 3,000 acres, or about 15 percent, of Roxbury’s total area is conserved as open space under the stewardship of the Roxbury Land Trust. The Trust was established in 1970 and continues its mission to protect the natural beauty and rural character of the town, providing space for hiking, fishing, cross country skiing and biking. The commute to New York City is under two hours.
