Near the end of this old road we will discover some of the remains of the abandoned settlement of Roxbury. This isolated community once boasted its own school, two lumber mills, a grist mill, and numerous farms and orchards. Today, all that remains of the settlement are graveyards, apple orchards, foundation depressions, and moss-covered stone walls, although some ramshackle hunting cabins have been erected on former homesteads.
