Roxbury City Documents (1847-1867)

The Town of Roxbury was one of the first towns founded in Massachusetts in 1630.  In 1846 it was incorporated as a city.  In 1851, the western part of the city, roughly the current neighborhoods of Jamaica Plain, Roslindale, and West Roxbury, left Roxbury to become the Town of West Roxbury.  In 1868 the city was annexed by the City of Boston.  Below are links to documents produced by the City of Roxbury.
