Town Description:

Roxbury, whose Indian name was "Shepaug", a Mohegan name signifiying "rocky water", was settled about the year 1713. Originally a part of Woodbury, the town was incorporated in October 1796.

Mine Hill and its minerals have been associated with Roxbury since the middle of the 18th Century. A silver mine was opened here and was later found to contain spathic iron, specially adapted to steel making and a small smelting furnace was built. The abundance of granite found in many of Mine Hill's quarries provided the building material for the ore roaster and blast furnace, as well as for such world wonders as the Brooklyn Bridge and Grand Central Station in New York City.

The three great leaders of the "Green Mountain Boys", Ethan Allen, Seth Warner, and Remember Baker, were originally from Roxbury.
