About Roxbury

Roxbury was one of the first towns founded in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1630. It became a city in 1846, before being annexed to Boston in 1868.

The neighborhood later became known for its large Irish, Latvian and Jewish communities. Then, by the mid-20th century, it had become the epicenter of Boston’s black culture - the city says that today, Roxbury serves as the "heart of Black culture in Boston.”

Modern day Roxbury is a welcoming, diverse place - full of locals who take great pride in their neighborhood.

Like a lot of Boston neighborhoods, Roxbury is well served by public transport. The Roxbury Crossing stop is on the Orange Line, while the Jackson Square and Ruggles stops are just beyond the neighborhood’s boundaries.

Dudley Square is on the Silver Line, while Uphams Corner and Newmarket have stops on the Commuter Rail.
