Roxbury


Historic Village

Roxbury was laid out by Paul Reamer. [1]

Roxbury is partly in Silver Spring, but principally in Monroe township. It is a small village, consisting of "a long string" of houses, along the road leading from Mechanicsburg to Carlisle, seven miles east of the latter place. There are here sixteen dwellings, and several mechanics' shops, situated in a rocky place. Paul Reamer, about thirty years ago, erected the first house. [2]
