Roxbury Township is located in Western end of Morris County, New Jersey.
Founded in 1740 as a center for Iron Mining and forges, supplying George Washington and the Continental Army later flourished as roads developed bringing trade from the east and west and the building of the Morris Canal (fed by Lake Hopatcong) in 1827, making Roxbury a major hub.
By the late 1880’s Roxbury saw another boom as two competing railroads overtook the canal for commercial trade and by 1890 ultimately turned Roxbury into the central gateway to the bustling resorts of Lake Hopatcong.
Roxbury Township has seen steady growth since introducing new train stations, homes, schools, and businesses – without losing any of its charm. Roxbury Township features six great communities – Landing, Lower Berkshire Valley, Port Morris, Kenvil, Ledgewood and Succasunna.
