Roxbury continues to attract hikers, geocachers, genealogists and history buffs. This “ghost town” has a lure that keeps bringing people back to a time in history when lumbering was the prime industry and frontier living was the norm. The grave yards, stone walls, the wells and the old foundations are still there giving evidence of a once thriving settlement.

Most of the original families had moved out by 1910. From 1921 until 1927, Andrew Rosengren and the Thygesen family homesteaded there. 1948 through to the late 1950’s saw lumbering activities by J. H. Hicks & Sons and Max Napthal. The 2000’s have seen  forestry work from Bowater Mersey and Lafarge Canada.
