Roxbury, VT, with a population of 691+, has a small but busy downtown area. It serves the town’s inhabitants, as well as visitors passing through by vehicle, bicycle, horseback or on foot. Roxbury is located in the geographical center of Vermont, nestled in the foothills of the Northfield Mountains range, part of the Green Mountains. Roxbury was once known for its Verde Antique marble quarries. The oldest Fish Hatchery in Vermont is here. There remain many lovely old buildings, both in town and on the back roads of Roxbury and East Roxbury. Unfortunately, the stately elm trees that lined the main street (VT Route 12A) are gone, killed by Dutch Elm Disease.
