Roxbury History

Roxbury was one of the first towns founded in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1630 and was originally named “Rocksberry” for its rocky soil. The First Church of Roxbury was the starting point for William Dawes’ “Midnight Ride” on April 18, 1775 (a different direction than Paul Revere’s better known ride) to warn Lexington and Concord of the British raids that kicked off the American Revolution. The area’s abundant natural resources proved highly attractive to colonists as well as waves of Irish and Latvian immigrants. Roxbury maintained a strong Jewish community near the Grove Hall area before becoming the epicenter of Boston’s Black culture by the mid-20th century. One of Roxbury’s most famous sons is Bobby Brown who rose to fame with the 80s group New Edition. His former bandmates (many from Roxbury) went on to form Bell Biv Devoe. Roxbury is also the birthplace of James Michael Curley, the former mayor and governor of Boston as well as actress, Diana Guerrero.
