Roxbury is a township with a population of more than 23,000 in Morris County, New Jersey. Roxbury includes the unincorporated communities of Ledgewood, Succasunna, Kenvil, Berkshire Valley, Landing, and Port Morris. What is now Roxbury, New Jersey, was first settled by the Nariticong clan of the Delaware Indian Nation and the Lenni Lenape Tribe. The first European settlers were a religious sect known as the Rogerenes, whose practices were a sort of cross between the Seventh Day Baptists and the Quakers, arrived in the first decade of the 1700s. Throughout the 1700s and 1800s Roxbury was an important iron mining town, and supplied the cannonballs used by George Washington and the Continental Army. In the early 1800s, the Essex - Morris - Sussex Turnpike and Morris Canal expanded Roxbury’s commercial activity, and provided an inexpensive means to move the town’s iron ore. In 1880, at the height of Roxbury’s mineral production, it exported 108,000 tons of iron ore on the Morris Canal in approximately 1,540 boat loads. In the 1890s, mining died off and Roxbury became a summer resort at Lake Hopatcong. In 1934 Route 10 opened Roxbury up to passenger traffic, and caused an increase in population, despite the Great Depression. Roxbury also had industry, and in 1940 51 people were killed in an explosion at the Hercules Powder Company plant. Although after World War II there were still many farms in Roxbury, it was a part of the great building boom and expansion of the suburbs, and in 1950 Roxbury’s first drive-in theatre opened. Although the drive-in is long closed, Roxbury maintains the feel of the old style community that it is.
